Gray skies and rainy, wind-swept weather didn’t stop some of the best and the brightest students in the Diocese of Brooklyn from celebrating their academic achievements at the annual Catholic Schools Night event.
The Tablet subscriptions sold during the month-long campaign resulted in more than $30,000 going back into students’ and schools’ pockets. Those checks are finally in the process of being signed, sealed, and delivered to participating students across the Diocese of Brooklyn.
The Tablet will officially launch its monthlong “COVID Relief Fundraiser for Catholic Schools” on March 15. Schools and students in the diocese’s 69 parish schools and Catholic academies will directly benefit by earning cash for themselves and their families through selling subscriptions to The Tablet.
DeSales Media donated 145 iPads with cellular service to the Internet to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy in Queens to help students participate in remote learning from home.
