Bishop Koenig is celebrating his first Catholic Schools Week as leader of the Diocese of Wilmington by continuing his tour of Catholic schools.

The tenth bishop of Wilmington spent part of Monday morning celebrating Mass with students and staff at Saint Mark’s High School.

Catholic Schools Week runs through this week as more than two dozen Catholic schools in the diocese celebrate our lives in faith and learning.

In the current edition of The Dialog, diocese schools Superintendent Louis De Angelo reports on an encouraging survey conducted among families that gives diocesan schools high marks in areas including faith, academics, athletics and the response to the pandemic.

Other photos and articles focus on Bishop Koenig’s tour this year that includes personal visits to each school in the diocese, a report on successful stand-alone preschools at several parishes, a local student who has gained national acclaim for her musical accomplishments, an article on special education programs in the diocese and a feature on the founder of Ss. Peter and Paul Parish and schools in Easton, Md.
