Archbishop Cordileone launches effort to promote Catholic identity in San Francisco archdiocesan high schools

January 29, 2015

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco is undertaking a study to determine how well archdiocesan high schools promote the Catholic faith. “We hear stories of children going through 12 years of Catholic education and then they leave the Church,” Archbishop Cordileone told the National Catholic Register. “Somehow we are not instilling a sense of Catholic identity in many of our students.”

The archbishop has announced plans for an assessment of 14 Catholic high schools: four administered directly by the archdiocese, the others independent. The goal of the effort is to strengthen the Catholic identity of the schools.

    Good luck. He is addressing the symptoms not the cause. It all begins (or not) in the families.

    Praise God for his leadership in doing this - Yes, we need to change this. It is a sad fact and something needs done. Prayers for Catholic schools to education fully both its students and families to grow closer to our Lord and His Church!
