Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
I am pleased to speak with you about our new diocesan Student Assessments for parish religious education programs (PREP), which will begin this year.
You may recall that one of my four priorities for the future of the Diocese of Wilmington is the “Renewal of Catechesis.” Several initiatives have been undertaken by our Office for Religious Education to support this priority. One particular initiative is the development of student assessments and it represents a specific recommendation from my advisory commission that focused on the Renewal of Catechesis.
As 33 parishes prepare for Wave II of the Sustaining Hope for the Future campaign, leaders of the $28 million drive stressed anew why the effort is necessary and the reasons why its success is vital not only to the Diocese of Wilmington, but to the parishes themselves.
Sustaining Hope for the Future aims to help the diocese get back on its feet following a 2011 bankruptcy court settlement in which the diocese paid $77.4 million to settle 150 claims of survivors of clergy sexual abuse, secure the lay employees’ pension trust, and honor claims of other creditors.
