A message from Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M.

One of the greatest contributions of the Catholic Church in our country remains the establishment of Catholic schools. Millions of young Catholics (and numerous non-Catholics) have been educated in Catholic schools since the very foundation of the United States. In the Diocese of Trenton, “Catholic Schools Have It All” and are committed to excellence in academics including subjects such as science, technology, engineering and math, as well as in the arts and athletics. And there’s something students can’t learn in public schools — a devotion to Christ and formation of their Catholic faith.

Las escuelas católicas lo tienen todo

Una de las mayores contribuciones de la Iglesia Católica en nuestro país sigue siendo el establecimiento de las escuelas católicas. Millones de católicos jóvenes (además de numerosos que no fueron católicos) han sido educados en escuelas católicas desde la misma fundación de los Estados Unidos. En la Diócesis de Trenton, “Las Escuelas Católicas Lo Tienen Todo” y están comprometidas a una excelencia en lo académico que incluye materias como las ciencias, la tecnología, la ingeniería y las matemáticas, además de excelencia en los artes y los deportes. Y hay algo importante que les falta a los estudiantes en escuelas públicas en cuanto su educación – una devoción a Cristo y formación en su fe católica.

Catholic Athletes for Christ

After nearly 40 years of whistles, playbooks, workouts in the summer heat, X’s and O’s, and game planning, Dan Duddy will have a little more free time next fall. But the recently-retired head coach of Donovan Catholic High School’s football team won’t measure the success of his tenure by wins and losses. For Duddy, serving as coach wasn’t just about learning a game. It was about building up — and exhibiting — virtue.

“When families invest in Catholic education, they are not only investing in their child, they are really setting up a legacy that will benefit not only their child, but their children’s children and beyond.”

— Dr. Edward Gere, principal, Donovan Catholic High School
