“Let’s challenge ourselves — as a diocese, ACCs and parishes — to think of ways to invite youth and young adults to participate in the planning of, and attendance at, revival-related events over these next few years.”
Thanks to a $10 million multi-year investment from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, the Catholic Schools Center of Excellence (CSCOE) will be able to serve every Catholic elementary school in Minnesota’s six dioceses — including St. Cloud.
Catholic elementary schools in the diocese took on a challenge offered by the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation: Every school raising at least $25,000 in gifts over and above previous giving or from new donors, starting Jan. 1 and ending March 31, would receive another $25,000 from the foundation.
The enrollment increase was from Catholic elementary schools and overall grew overall by 5.8% — primarily due to the sharp rise in the number of prekindergarten students. Catholic secondary schools’ enrollment went down by 0.4% this year.
