Catholic Schools Have it All



‘Catholic schools are every Catholic’s business and responsibility’

(excerpted from the 2015 Catholic Schools Weeks message from Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M.)

One of the greatest contributions of the Catholic Church in our country remains the establishment of Catholic schools. Millions of young Catholics (and numerous non-Catholics) have been educated in Catholic schools since the very foundation of the United States.

My many years working in Catholic schools have convinced me there is no substitute for what they have to offer: Catholic faith; Catholic values and world view; Catholic socialization and excellence in educational experience. Independent research has likewise demonstrated that fact. Catholic schools are every Catholic’s business and responsibility, because they are the greatest hope for the future of our teaching and learning Church. Imagine the history of the Catholic Church in our country without them.

Let us all get behind Catholic schools in the Diocese of Trenton. Let’s “fill the seats” so that we can form communities that fill the hearts and minds of our young Catholics with “Faith, Knowledge and Service” – the hallmarks of Catholic education.
