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 the Segura Initiative. This office assists the Bishop in his mandate as Teacher of the Catholic Faith by establishing a framework for fostering excellence in catechetical and academic education in the parishes and schools of the diocese. This shared mission is accomplished through enhanced catechetical formation for adults, children, and youth; basic and advanced parish leadership formation; and accessibility to Catholic schools.
