Msgr. Albin Grous, pastor of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish in Drexel Hill, Delaware County, celebrated Mass on Sunday, Jan. 28 to begin the observance of Catholic Schools Week at his parish school, along with all schools in the Philadelphia Archdiocese this week. Msgr. Grous and St. Andrew School Principal Helen McLean received national honors from the National Catholic Educational Association, along with three others in the archdiocese, the most of any in the United States. Read all about how they revived enrollment for the now-thriving St. Andrew School. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
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.
