Happy Catholic Schools Week

Happy Catholic Schools Week and thank you teachers and staff for your service to Catholic education in the Diocese of Raleigh!

Interesting Tidbit

As we celebrate our current Catholic schools it is interesting to note that in the 1950s North Carolina had 56 Catholic elementary schools, 11 Catholic high schools or academies, and 3 Catholic colleges and resident schools including a school of nursing! So there were 70 vibrant Catholic educational institutions in a state at a time when only 1% of the population was Catholic!
