Beyond the school walls; programming needs receive funding
Funds seek to foster Catholic identity in schools and parishes
In addition to the distribution of funds for tuition grants from the One Faith, One Hope, One Love campaign, funds are also allocated for programs that foster the Catholic identity, leadership and academic quality in schools, religious education programs and parishes. This programming will receive $343,000 for the 2018-2019 school year.
The money will be used to continue several initiatives with the aim of growing the Catholic identity. These include the Vocare and “School of Faith” programs.
Money will also be allocated for programs designed to foster school and catechetical leadership skills. Catholic high school boards, the professional development of principals, Directors of Religious Education and the continuation of the Aspiring Leaders program that began last year, will all be a focus for the Archdiocese’s Educational Services Department. In addition the strategic vision for the Department will also be explored.
Money for academic efforts will fund Latino Outreach programs, preschool initiatives that continue to grow (currently 65 preschools in the Archdiocese) and summer school programs that assist students living in poverty.
