Considering the blessing of Catholic education
by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
Sunday, Jan. 22 at 2 p.m. marks the opening of the preliminary phase of the diocesan synod with a prayer service at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield. In the months ahead during this calendar year of 2017, our diocesan synod will consider how we can make a communal commitment as a diocesan community of clergy and laity regarding discipleship and stewardship as a way of life. Closely related to this will be for us to look at how we can foster community-wide support of Catholic education so that more students will be able to attend Catholic schools.
