Distance Learning

In March, our schools transformed from bricks mortar classrooms to remote learning in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Across our diocese, our schools continue to demonstrate the tireless dedication, inspiring ingenuity and deep concern for their communities.

While our buildings are closed, our minds and hearts are open. Our teachers are teaching, our students are learning. Take a peek into how our schools continue to teach, connect and live our faith despite the distance.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”  –  1 Chronicles 16:34:
