Catholic Schools: Communities of faith, knowledge and service

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley        
January 8, 2017

If you periodically scan my calendar in the Sooner Catholic, you might notice that I spend a lot of time visiting our Catholic schools. It’s a priority for me. Every year, I make it a point to travel to each of our 21 Catholic elementary and secondary schools around the archdiocese.

Among these, we have two high schools, 18 elementary schools and one school for children on the autistic spectrum. I am proud of each of these institutions. Each represents a shared commitment among parents, pastors, administrators, faculty and staff, the parishes and the archdiocese. In the fall, we will welcome another Catholic high school, Cristo Rey Oklahoma City Catholic High School. Though not part of the archdiocesan system, it will provide a unique opportunity for more families to experience the benefit of Catholic secondary education.

Comunidades de fe, conocimiento y servicio

Reverendísimo Pablo S. Coakley
8 de enero, 2017

Si periódicamente miran mi calendario en el Sooner Catholic, notarán que paso mucho tiempo visitando a nuestras escuelas católicas. Es una prioridad para mí. Cada año hago un esfuerzo por viajar a cada una de nuestras veintiuna escuelas católicas primarias y secundarias alrededor de la Arquidiócesis.

Entre ellos tenemos dos escuelas secundarias, dieciocho escuelas primarias y una escuela para niños autistas. Estoy orgulloso de cada una de estas instituciones. Cada uno representa un compromiso compartido entre padres, pastores, administradores, profesores y personal, las parroquias y la Arquidiócesis.

En el otoño, daremos la bienvenida a otra escuela secundaria católica, la Escuela Secundaria Católica Cristo Rey Oklahoma City. Aunque no forma parte del sistema arquidiocesano, proporcionará una oportunidad única para que más familias experimenten el beneficio de la educación secundaria católica.
