Support Catholic Schools
During Catholic Schools Week!

National Catholic Schools Week is just around the corner, being celebrated from January 29th to February 4th. The schools within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia celebrate each year to promote the exceptional education that comes with functioning as a Catholic school.  This year, we especially ask that in an effort to show our appreciation for our own catholic education, we support the work of the Missionary Childhood Association (MCA), which helps the building and funding of young, growing catholic schools in some of the poorest areas of the world.

MCA supports various projects in multiple countries that are constantly making an impact in improving the lives of children. One project, The St. John Eudes Rehabilitation Centre was founded in 2001 on the mandate of the Catholic Diocese of Kitui to assist the increasing number of children who, due to challenging economic and social circumstances, are forced to live on the streets in Kitui and surrounding districts. The Centre offers an environment that promote their holistic growth in order to build their lifestyle, achieve self-worth and dignity, and provides them with the emotional, psychological and material support necessary to enable their successful reintegration into community life. It prepares children to lead meaningful lives in the future by empowering them with necessary to become independent and responsible people in the society.
