Catholic education is one of the greatest instruments we have available to evangelize and to pass on the treasures of our faith. Through our Catholic schools we reach not only the children who seek excellence in education, faith and morals, but also their parents, family and friends who see firsthand those values each day.
The importance of having our children begin their day with prayer, freely talk about faith in God and incorporate essential moral values into their daily lives cannot be underestimated. The Catholic school experience not only prepares our children for challenges they will face as adults, it also prepares them to become intellectual and honorable leaders of our next generation.
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.
