Catholic Schools: Faith and Academics

It’s Catholic Schools Week! It happens every year and is always an opportunity to celebrate the amazing work being done at Bishop Kelley and at Catholic schools around the country. I am particularly proud to work with exceptional educational leaders in the Diocese of Tulsa.

I want to draw your attention to a recent talk given by Bishop George Murry of the Diocese of Youngstown, OH. Bishop Murry is the Chair of the NCEA and is heading up the US Bishops’ effort to promote Catholic schools.

He is campaigning in his diocese and around the country to not only emphasize that Catholic schools help promote the Catholic faith (and they do!) but also that they are doing great work academically too. Here’s a summary of a June 2016 talk Bishop Murry gave at Fordham University.
