Purpose: The Office of Catholic Education is an office that brings together the expertise and resources of the Offices of Catholic Schools, Christian Formation and Parish Leadership Formation into a single, collaborative structure. This new structure seeks to assist the Bishop in his mandate as Teacher of the Catholic Faith by establishing a climate and framework for fostering excellence in catechetical and academic education in the parishes and schools of the diocese. This mission is accomplished through enhanced catechetical formation for adults, children, youth and basic and advanced parish leadership formation.
