Graduating seniors from the 17 archdiocesan high schools in the Philadelphia Archdiocese earned a record cumulative amount of college scholarships this year totaling more than $396 million. Representative students from the schools gathered May 31 at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center in Philadelphia to celebrate the achievement.
In a separate event, the 30 National Merit Scholarship recipients from the archdiocesan high schools met May 21 in the multi-media room of Roman Catholic High School’s new Howard Center in Philadelphia. (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.
