Here’s Some Proof Catholic Schools are Alive and Well

by sister leonette on July 10, 2013

Catholic schools are not dead or dying. New York Times recently published a letter from our Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity dear friend and colleague, Rachel Moreno. In the letter, Rachel respectfully pushes back against the recent article in the Times about the decline of Catholic schools that serve low-income and minority communities.

  1. Thank you very much for posting this. Our sisters’ work among the poor is a “well kept secret” as well as the work of the Catholic Church among the poor and marginalized. Sister Leonette, your work with ACE Academies in the Tucson area is remarkable as I saw first hand when I facilitated the retreat last year. Carry on, good and faithful servant of God!
