The mission of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Owensboro is to share in the Church’s mission: to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ as lived out in the Catholic Church, which creates a worshiping community of believers whose service is a witness of their Christian love.
Catholic School educators have a commitment to students, to the ministry of teaching, and to the community. The Catholic school educator makes the well-being of students the foundation of all decisions and actions, performs teaching responsibilities with diligence and integrity, and believes the Catholic school community is both an agent of appropriate change and a preserver of basic tradition.
Below is a speech from His Eminence Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan in Louisville at the Catholic Education Foundation’s Salute to Catholic School Alumni Dinner in March 2016. We believe his message to be powerful and relevant to the Diocese of Owensboro as well. Please enjoy.
