Interesting news out of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, as Loyola Marymount University has established the Center for Catholic Education within its School of Education.  Launched in August 2010, the Center brings together 10 Catholic-focused education programs that advance Catholic education in the greater Los Angeles region.  This initiative reflects the latest response by Catholic universities to adopt greater ownership over K-12 education, as called for in United States Catholic Conference of Bishops’ 2005 pastoral statement Renewing Our Commitment to Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools in the Third Millenium.

For more information on the Center, you can visit its website:  Center for Catholic Education.
