As we begin Catholic Schools Week we thank the members of Notre Dame de la Mer Parish for your prayers and support of Cape Trinity Catholic and Wildwood Catholic High School.
Today’s Responsorial Psalm, “Teach me your ways, O Lord” is at the heart of the mission of Catholic education. Religious awareness and appreciation of morals and values are at the center of our educational programs. In a safe and secure environment with high standards and effective discipline we offer our students a strong core curriculum that propels them into the next stage of learning with an excellent foundation.
Pope Francis, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio wrote: The education of children and young people is such an important task in forming them as free and responsible human beings. It affirms their dignity as an inalienable gift that flows from our original creation as children made in the image and likeness of God. And because education truly forms human beings, it is especially the duty and responsibility of the Church, who is called to serve mankind from the heart of God and in such a way that no other institution can.
Our schools are truly blessed by the students, faculty, parents, parishes, diocese, and community members who have seen the value of Catholic education and worked hard to ensure its future in the southernmost part of New Jersey. What a gift to our children!
Please visit our schools in person or take a look at our websites to see our “Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service” in action.
