“Today marks the end of the academic year for students, school families, and educators in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
“I send my prayerful best wishes to all and ask God to bless our young people during this summer season. May they know his love and receive his protection in all that they do over the coming months. I also express my sincere gratitude to our school administrators, teachers, and staff members. Each day, they answer God’s call to enrich the lives of the young people in our schools by contributing to their intellectual and human formation in academic and social settings centered on the model of Christ.
“May God bless you all with a safe and enjoyable summer break.”
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.
