The Catholic schools of our Archdiocese must continue to be vibrant communities of academic, social, and spiritual excellence. Our schools must be on mission, dedicated to forming intentional disciples of Jesus Christ. Our schools must be excellent in every way, with superior academics, faith formation, and governance. All Catholic schools must be accessible to all who desire an education in Gospel values, regardless of socioeconomic status or geography. Finally, our schools must be sustainable for the future, ensuring the presence of a Catholic education to the families of northern Colorado for generations to come. The good produced by Catholic schools is undeniable, and their impact on forming our children is irreplaceable. For all these reasons, our schools are worthy of the investment of time, talent, and treasure.
Any entity or mission that can accurately describe itself as Catholic must accept their responsibility as stewards of something that Christ himself founded. The Archdiocese of Denver takes the stewardship of the title “Catholic Schools,” and the families we serve, as a sacred honor that currently requires some refining action. In Worthy of the Name, we outlined four critical areas in which the combined efforts of our archdiocese will transform our schools, helping them to be truly worthy of the name Catholic.
