The pastors of two Bucks County parishes welcomed students back to school and blessed the new sign on the front lawn of St. Katharine Drexel Regional Catholic School on Sept. 5.
Msgr. John Marine of St. Bede the Venerable Parish in Holland and Father William McGeown of Assumption B.V.M. in Feasterville led the festivities at the school along with newly appointed Principal Laura Clark.
The school is the product of a merger of the two respective parish schools, plus students from St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Richboro, in 2012.
St. Katharine Drexel School forms leaders through academic excellence, personal discipline and Christian service to one another and the community.
The school is located on the grounds of St. Bede Parish and includes full-day kindergarten, classrooms for grades one through eight, a computer lab, LabLearner science lab, library, art room, cafeteria and gymnasium with a stage for the performing arts.
All classrooms are equipped with SMART Boards, projectors and high-speed Internet access. Netbooks, laptops and iPads are a part of daily instruction.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
