Catholic Schools

   

Faith, Knowledge and Service form the heart of our Catholic schools.  We are blessed to have schools in 19 counties across Northwest Ohio serving over 15,000 students.  Parents who send their children into our safe and faith filled schools invest in an education not available in a public school environment.  This formation of faith is the bedrock of a Catholic school and the outcome for a child of God is unequalled.

Have your child spend a day with us and you’ll see the difference – a difference to last a lifetime.

Be Social with the Catholic Schools

2018 Golden Apple Information

2018 Golden Apple Timeline

2018 Golden Apple Nomination Form

After nominations are submitted, the link for the Golden Apple Award Google Classroom will be shared with the nominees to begin the application process.

Through the generosity and kindness of the Jack and Rhodora Donahue Family Foundation of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, the Golden Apple Award has been established to honor outstanding individuals who devote their lives to teaching in Catholic schools. This awards program has been expanded from the Diocese of Pittsburgh to include the Diocese of Toledo. The 2017-2018 school year marks the thirteenth consecutive year that this prestigious award has been presented in the Diocese of Toledo.

The Diocese of Toledo recognizes and deeply appreciates teachers who base their ministry on the following “Credo”:

As Catholic School Educators,

we believe our Catholic School is not only a school,

but a community of Faith;

we believe those entrusted to us are not only students,

but children of God;

we believe we are not only educators,

but Ministers of the Gospel;

we believe the values we teach are not only character development,

but a call to Holiness;

we believe our courses of study are not only academic pursuits,

but a search for Truth;

we believe the purpose of education is not only for personal gain

and the development of society,

but for the Transformation of the world.

In light of the valuable contribution made by Catholic school teachers to the Church, and society in general, the Diocese of Toledo is able to demonstrate its appreciation through the Golden Apple Award program.

2018 Catholic Schools Week

Events

 

All schools are celebrating Catholic Schools Week with special recognition days of parishioners, community, families, students, teachers and vocations!  Thank you letters are being written to parishioners for their support, or servicemen and women, local speakers will be visiting schools, and family picnics are being planned!  Special Masses will be celebrated this Sunday with students participating as lectors.  Here are a few special events at some of our schools;

 

Carey, Our Lady of Consolation

They are having a “Bee” week for the Beatitudes.  Please see attached schedule.

 

Delphos St. John

On Sunday, January 28th, we will begin Catholic Schools Week at our 11:30am Mass.  Students from all grade levels will participate in this Mass.  Monday is "Souper Bowl" Day.  Students will be asked to bring in cans of soup for our St. Vincent dePaul Society and a monetary donation to Rise Against Hunger.

Wednesday is Vocation Day.  Father Phil Smith and Andrew Wellmann, as well as Sister Immacolata and Sister Teresita Richards will be here to talk about vocations.  We also will have a panel discussion with married and single people.  Culture Project will also speak that day on sexual integrity.

Thursday we will have a K-12 Mass with Father Phil Smith presiding.  We will recognize our volunteers. Mayor Josh Gillespie will also be a Mass to proclaim January 28-February 2nd Catholic Schools Week in Delphos!

 

Fremont, Bishop Hoffman

In an e-mail from Fr. Nathan Bockrath, “In response to your email about Catholic School's Week, here in Fremont, we will be capping off the week by combining the two campuses that make up BHCS.  This may sound simple, but considering the distance between the two campuses, much coordination is needed.  In the past we have always had an all school-Mass ... which we will still have and Fr. Phil Smith will be our guest homilist.  What will be new this year is that we will have our K-6th grade students at the Sacred Heart campus come over to the St. Joseph campus before Mass.  Based on a housing model, students will have lunch together with some fun activities.  This will be followed by a pep-rally, and then Mass.”

 

Napoleon, St. Augustine

St. Augustine, Napoleon will be sponsoring a potluck after 10:30 mass on January 28. A reading activity will follow.

*Toledo, St. Benedict

One of the CSW highlights for St. Benedict Catholic School will be our "field trip" (literally across our field) to the new Sunshine Community Homes on Olimphia Road.  We have been working for several months with Little Flower Parish and Sunshine Community to begin building relationships with our soon to be neighbors; 16 men and women with developmental disabilities who will be living in a setting where they can better share their gifts and talents with others.  On Monday "Celebrating our Community Day," our big and little buddies at school will walk over together to see the finished homes prior to the March move in day.  They will be able to see the rooms where their adopted Sunshine buddies will live and get learn about the special care our new friends will receive in their new homes.  This is the beginning of a long and intentional relationship between St. Benedict Catholic School and Sunshine Community

 

Toledo St. Pius X

Celebrating Family, Parishioners, Vocations, Community and Students.  Ending with…

Saturday: Celebrate Your Family

Willard, St. Francis Xavier - The highlights would be "Celebrating Vocations" on Feb. 1st.  We will have four people speak on their chosen vocation.  There will be a college graduate, a sister, military person and a graduate from a vocational school.  Two of our speakers are alumni.  They will speak about how St. Francis Xavier School helped them prepare for their career path.  The other two speakers will incorporate how their faith helped them in the career choice.
