“Families are unbelievably appreciative of the Catholic education their children are receiving thanks to the generous stewardship of so many caring community partners,” said Mary McCoy.  “Catholic schools partner with families in the hopes and dreams that they have for their children, and the ability to choose a Catholic school can make all the difference in the world.”
