Bishop Barbarito’s Special Message about our Catholic Schools
At Masses the weekend of January 14 & 15 the diocese will have a special collection on behalf of our Catholic schools for needs-based tuition assistance. Your generous gift will assist our schools as they strive to make a Catholic education accessible to all who desire it, regardless of socio-economic status. Our goal is to help young people grow in their faith, excel academically and serve humbly. Last year each of our schools received over $8,300 thanks to your generosity!
In the Diocese of Palm Beach, Catholic-school education is a priority. In his special letter to parishioners Bishop Barbarito emphasizes the important of such an education, and also explains how the diocese is increasing the funding available for needs-based tuition assistance to families.
