Catholic Schools: A+ for America
Catholic Schools Week begins this Sunday — a time for all parents to check out the open houses at the Catholic elementary schools in your area, and also a time for all of us to consider how we can help support our Catholic schools.
Inside this special section, we are pleased to present a pictorial journey through the wide range of activities — academic learning, prayer and spirituality, physical and social development, and service to others — that characterize Catholic schools on Long Island.
Certainly, a Catholic school education is a most worthwhile investment for parents — a chance to give your child the best opportunities to grow spiritually, socially and intellectually in a faith-based, first-rate academic environment fortified with the latest in educational technology.
Parents, inside you will find advertisements from many of our Catholic schools on Long Island, giving details of their open houses and other Catholic Schools Week activities beginning this Sunday, January 30. If you do not find an advertisement for your parish or regional school check with them directly for their open house information.
In addition, support for Catholic schools is a worthwhile investment for all of us, whether or not we are currently parents of school-age children. By supporting Catholic education, we are helping to prepare future generations of young Catholics to live out their faith, and in so doing to continue our mission of bringing Christ to the world around us.
In short, when we support Catholic schools, we are helping to build a stronger Church and a better world.
