The Value of Catholic School


Take it from me who went to Catholic school Kindergarten through 8th grade.  I could not wait to wear my own clothes, compete in sports in public school, and not go to mass more than once a week. I can remember my sisters asking my mom, “Do we have to go to church on Sunday? [...]
