The Tablet’s “COVID Relief Fundraiser for Catholic Schools” is back for its second year to offer school students an extra credit assignment that can earn them cash for tuition and raise funds for their schools in 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.
Since starting my adventure as Youth Editor with The Tablet newspaper only three years ago, I’ve learned through so many people just how much the diocesan paper has been a part of their lives.
When The Tablet Jr. makes its debut in two weeks, students from our Catholic schools and academies will have a new platform to share their experiences and hopes with their classmates and their peers in Brooklyn and Queens. We at The Tablet want to read your stories in your voices.
I grew up in the Diocese of Brooklyn, and so I know that everyone knows The Tablet! It was used as a supplemental resource when I was a student. It was also a big part of my parish and Catholic tradition.
The Tablet newspaper has been a part of the Diocese of Brooklyn’s lifeline since 1908. More than 110 years later, the diocesan newspaper will launch its first-ever monthly four-page pullout for young students in kindergarten through eighth grade called “The Tablet Jr.”
