New England Catholic Bishops Support Catholic Schools
As we, the Catholic Bishops of the United States, and the entire Catholic community continue our journey through the twenty-first century, it remains our duty to model the Person of Jesus Christ, to teach the Gospel, and to evangelize our culture. We are convinced that Catholic elementary and secondary schools play a vital role in this endeavor.
