We understand how institutions such as parks, libraries, and grocery stores strengthen our communities. But research shows that another key indicator of a healthy community is the presence of a Catholic school. Why are Catholic schools essential for a strong Church and community? A moderated panel of local and national experts will discuss this critical question. Listen as experts discuss the extent to which Catholic education impacts our families, parishes, and our community at large. Panelists include the coauthor of Lost Classroom, Lost Community: Catholic Schools’ Importance in Urban America, a professor focused on the Latino educational experience, a parish pastor and parochial administrator of two Catholic schools, and the heads of the Catholic Schools Center of Excellence and the Aim Higher Foundation. Please join us from 6-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, at Cretin-Derham Hall School in Saint Paul. This event is free and open to the public. Register online.
