Archbishop Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia, used his weekly column to highlight one way in which supporters of Catholic schools could celebrate Catholic Schools Week: work to provide educational choice to parents.  In his message, Archbishop Chaput encourages Catholic schools’ advocates within the state to contact their legislators to support school choice in Pennsylvania.  He writes, “If we Philadelphia Catholics love our Catholic schools, and we obviously do, then the time to get active and focused is now.”  If his efforts are successful, Catholic Schools Week will not be the only time for celebration.
