High School Collection

Each year the Archdiocesan collection on behalf of Catholic secondary schools provides critical assistance to high schools that are committed to providing their students with an outstanding educational experience. This year the collection comes in the midst of uncertainty, difficulty and challenge, not only for the schools, but for parishes as well. While keeping every parish community in our prayers, we are asking for your support in promoting the Catholic High School Collection, scheduled for the weekend of January 23 and 24, 2021.
By participating in the collection, your parish will play an important role in ensuring that an education in faith is possible for the future leaders of our church. Proceeds from the collection provide funds for tuition assistance, technology enhancements, curricular improvements, and marketing, all of which are so important during this ongoing pandemic.
Below we have provided tools that you can use to advertise the upcoming collection within your parish community, including social media graphics and bulletin announcements. Please feel free to use these texts and graphics in your newsletter, bulletins, website, social media, and any other parish communications.
