PLANNED GIVINGENSURE THE FUTURE OF OUR SCHOOLS
About the St. Drexel Fund
The burden of supporting our Catholic schools cannot be placed exclusively on individual parishes that have schools. It will require all Catholics, including those in parishes without schools, and those who no longer have school-age children, to join us in this endeavor. Catholic schools are worthy of everyone's support to ensure that they not only survive but thrive.
Catholic schools are parochial; they belong to the parish. They are not private schools that are owned and operated by those who use them. Therefore, every school family is encouraged to be an active parish steward.
Walk in Sister's Shoes is a diocesan-wide effort to educate families about the mission and ministries of this American saint and drive support for our own Catholic schools with an annual collection from students across the diocese
O God, You are the source of light that enlightens the mind with the splendor of truth. We ask you to bless all the Catholic elementary and secondary schools in our diocese with a strong faith in You, who alone are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Bless all our parish families who follow Your guidance as they sacrifice to make Catholic education available to all, from the greatest to the least among us.
We thank you for the gift of our Catholic Schools, our teachers, staff and volunteers, our parents and children, our faithful parishioners - our entire Catholic family.
Together they make it possible for our youth to be formed as disciples of Christ who know Him in the Scriptures and "in the breaking of the bread," who love Him in their brothers and sisters, and who serve Him in all they do for the glory of God and the good of others, that throughout their lives they may experience the happiness of belonging to God and come one day to perfect joy You forever as saints in heaven
