Happy Catholic Schools' Week ....

Teaching is a beautiful job; as it allows you to see the growth, day by day, of people entrusted to your care. It is a little like being parents, at least spiritually. It is a great responsibility. - Pope Francis

Wishing all of you a wonderful week as we celebrate Faith, Knowledge, and Service in our communities, students, volunteers, teachers, and staff!

My thanks to all of our principals, administrators, teachers, and staff - those who fill our classrooms with their wisdom and devote their lives to educating students in an atmosphere of academic excellence and Catholic faith. I am very grateful to each of you - for your care, devotion, and outstanding efforts! I look forward to celebrating this week's All Catholic Schools' Mass with each of our schools on Tuesday!

Have a terrific week!
