This article seeks to explore the depths of these realities in the context of our culture, our society--a world not always prepared to hear and accept the message. It is precisely this context that has evoked the call…

Declining enrollment and increased school closings or consolidations in Pre-K-12 Catholic education, especially in the Northeast, reduce the accessibility and options families have for faith-based education.
