Pray, Reflect, and Take Action as we celebrate Religious Freedom June 27
Religious Freedom Week 2020: For the Good of All
That Catholic schools in our country would be free to teach the truth about God and his creation.
Education is central to the Church’s mission. In fact, one of the Spiritual Works of Mercy is to teach. In the U.S., the Catholic school system grew out of necessity, due to the wave of 19th Century Catholic immigrants who felt unwelcome in the “public” school system. Since then, Catholic schools have been significant anchor institutions in many neighborhoods, benefitting even those who are not their students. Catholic leaders have played a leading role in ensuring that all children have access to quality education. Education is what Catholics do, and an America without Catholic schools is unimaginable. Catholic schools need the space to operate in accordance with Catholic convictions if they are to continue to be a source of vitality for our society.
