It’s that time of year again — school is about to begin.

I have a suggestion for parents to think seriously about, and that is giving their children a Catholic education. I for one would like to praise Catholic schools for their ongoing contribution to education and for their role in ensuring a brighter, stronger future for the nation. These fine schools produce students strongly dedicated to their faith, families and communities by providing an intellectually stimulating environment, rich in spirituality, character and moral development.

The teachers in Catholic schools are dedicated to every child and try to bring out in as many children that hidden talent to make them the very best they can be. You see, these children are the leaders of tomorrow and need what these Catholic schools provide.

In my view I hope all interested parents get in touch with their parish or the Catholic school in their area and take the first step in improving their children’s future.

That being said, I would like to report that St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council # 5911 in Douglaston, where I serve as Grand Knight, has just donated $50,000 to Cathedral Preparatory Seminary in Elmhurst. We do this because we believe in supporting Catholic education and vocations to the priesthood.
