The forceful and blessed presence of Catholic Schools is evidence that the Almighty is hearing the faithful's prayers for the formation and education of our youth in the Faith. May the Lord bless each and every person involved in the crucial aspect of the evangelization. The young must be the fertile ground where the seed of Christ's message is planted. THANK YOU, JESUS. FOR CATHOLIC SCHOOLS!
