U.S. Bishops Feature Benefits of Catholic Schools in New Video

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) recently created a new video highlighting the benefits and necessity of Catholic schools as “communities of the New Evangelization and partners with parents in a child’s education,” according to the video’s description.

In the words of Sr. Joette Ebert, O.S.F., “Catholic education provides for us … the perfect forum for raising kids, training them, helping them to grow in knowledge … in the context of faith. The combination of those factors, I wholeheartedly believe, shapes our children into adults who will be committed, and who will see themselves as holy and vital, and also called by God.”

Other interviewees cite access to technology, libraries, and college-credit classes; formation for leadership and service; and ample attention from teachers as particular strengths of Catholic education.

The video was posted on the USCCB Facebook page, along with a message expressing optimism about the upcoming school year.

One of the featured schools in the video is Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville, Md., a school that was included in the Top 50 of The Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic High School Honor Roll in 2012.
