Catholic Schools Week 2023

Hi All,

This weekend is Catholic Schools Week, a week dedicated to celebrating Catholic Schools and the education they provide. Over the last couple of years, as a result of the pandemic, the strengths of a child being educated in a Catholic School have become more apparent. Our schools do phenomenal work, with far fewer resources, then other learning institutions. As a former Catholic high school teacher, I noticed this even in the 90’s.

If you look around the world at people who are highly successful in their professional life, many of them credit the education they received through a catholic school. Beyond education is the faith. Any school, public or private, can yield a great education, but when education is coupled with faith, it cannot be beat!

I believe OUR school, Our Lady of Refuge, under the leadership of Lauri Hoffman, truly puts the faith of our children first and foremost. This should always be the first priority for our children’s lives, especially when attending Catholic school.

The teachers here at Refuge work very hard and I commend them for all they do. Over the next few weeks please find time to show your appreciation to the community of Catholic School leaders and educators, especially those here at Our Lady of Refuge.

Peace and God Bless
Fr. Ron Richards
