TWENTY YEARS AGO, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans, “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.”
Countless people in our country
have been blessed by the many
gifts of Catholic schools. They
have carried what they have
learned and witnessed with them;
however, many have lost touch
with their local Catholic school
community. It is time for these
people to reconnect with Catholic
schools and give back.
It is with this recognition in
mind that the National Catholic
Educational Association (NCEA)
is pleased to present Many
Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving
to Catholic Schools.
The day is
meant, first and foremost, to
support Catholic schools in their
already existing development and
advancement efforts. Scheduled
for January 29, 2019, 12 PM EST to
January 30, 2019 12 PM EST, this
is a time for individuals to give
to their local Catholic school.
By leveraging social media, this
national day of philanthropy and camaraderie will invite all people,
across the country, who have
been impacted by Catholic school
education in ways big and small, to
donate at a local level.
