Watch this extraordinary video and learn more about what our Catholic Schools have to offer.

People ask me all kinds of questions. As your Bishop, I would like to begin a series of Catechetical instructions to help clarify some of the issues, expectations and misunderstandings presented to me most often. I would like to begin with the sacraments of the Catholic Church.
