DiocesanBishop Libasci’s vision to bring a new hope and the good news of Jesus Christ, through our Catholic faith, to all in New Hampshire is being realized NHCatholicSchoolsthrough the good works of the Diocesan Catholic Schools Office, who are committed to making Catholic education accessible, available, and affordable to any family that desires it. There are many ways in which the CSO is working to achieve this mission. In the last year, they have opened two new schools, expanded educational opportunities for students with non-typical learning abilities, and provided additional funding for financial aid through the establishment of the St. John Neumann Catholic School Trust.

In a letter dated April 28th, Fr. Kyle Stanton, pastor of Good Shepherd and Holy Family Parishes, announced to his parishioners that Salve Regina Academy will open for the 2019-2020 Academic year on the site of the Holy Family SalveReginaParish Center.

This new parish school is built upon the vision of an “authentically Catholic community of lifelong learners dedicated to discovering all that is Good, True, and Beautiful through a commitment to academic excellence and personal discipleship in the holistic tradition of Catholic education”. Two years ago, Fr. Stanton formed a committee to establish the location, curriculum, and culture of a new Catholic school. Parents wanted a curriculum, culture, and mission distinctly different from that of other schools.

FrMcGivney 002Vocations to the priesthood and religious life are very important to the Catholic Church and to our Order. We need priests to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and to teach and lead us on the path to Jesus. Education costs are extremely high for the candidates to the priesthood and religious life. The NH State Council wants to assist these men and women with a special calling by providing financial support for their education.
