A CATHOLIC EDUCATION SHOULD BE ACCESSIBLE TO ANYONE REGARDLESS OF ECONOMIC MEANS!
“I think the difference between me and some people is that I’m content to do my little bit. Sometimes people think they have to do big things in order to make change. But if each one would light a candle, we’d have a tremendous light.”
-Sister Thea Bowman, FSPA
