And where I live the Bishop closed down the only Catholic School for about 100 miles.
Are you going to say the Bishop isn't Catholic?
The area I live in is economically depressed, most families have both parents working just to make ends meet. By Count there are 2 Catholic Churches 14 miles apart in two towns and get read for this 47 Non-Catholic Christian churches.
One of the "Christian" schools refuses to accept Catholics because everyone knows that Catholics are not really Christian.
What should these parents do? Would you have them their Faith to attend this school?
I am a former homeschooling mom.
I **know** how little it takes in terms of money to educate a child.
If the Catholic children in you diocese are not getting a free Catholic education it is because the bishop lacks imagination on how to get it done. ( or prefers to see kids going to godless government school.)
My suggestion? He should get a bunch of homeschooling moms and dads together and they should do some brainstorming. They have the buildings at least, I know how much curriculum costs and how many kids can use it from year to year. All that is lacking is money to pay the teachers.
Gee!! Do you think some might consider it a calling and teach for gas money or even for free?
