Collars vs. Scholars

Just before the June sunrays reached peak intensity in Prospect Park, when the UV lights were making the rounds across Baseball Field No. 7, stood a softball player in the batter’s circle who didn’t need loads of luck for her upcoming Collars vs. Scholars game at MCU Field, June 25.

The Seven Pillars of Priesthood

I take my cue from our Holy Father, Pope Francis, who over the years of his Pontificate has annunciated what we might call the “Seven Pillars” on which the priesthood depends if it will faithfully and fruitfully serve God’s people.

The Cost of Education

It was recently announced that two more of our Catholic academies, one in Rego Park, and the other in Queens Village, will shut their doors after the current semester. The reasons are all too familiar – rising costs and decreasing enrollment!

Achieving Success Through Learning, Serving, Leading

As we begin to celebrate Catholic Schools Week on Jan. 28, the theme: “Catholic Schools: Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed” definitely applies to the academies and parish schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn.

Learn, Seek, Lead, and Succeed

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

Each year, Catholic Schools Week is a time for everyone to celebrate the great success stories of Catholic education within the Diocese of Brooklyn. During this special week, we recognize the accomplishments of our students, the commitment of our parents, the dedication of our teachers and staff, the leadership of our principals, the work of the boards of directors, and the spiritual leadership of our pastors and parish priests. The theme for this year’s Catholic Schools Week – “Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” – is evident in all of the Catholic academies and parish schools in Brooklyn and Queens.

Meeting the Challenges of a New School Year

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

The summer months of July and August are fast coming to a close and the new academic year is about to begin here in Brooklyn and Queens.

Another School Year

As we conclude another academic year in our Catholic schools and academies, we should stop and thank God for the blessings that He has truly bestowed on us as a Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens.
