The Catholic Character of Catholic Schools

The Catholic Character of Catholic Schools

John Convey

This is a book for bishops, pastors, superintendents, principals,teachers, and parents, all of whom have an investment in the schools' religious character and ability to cultivate a religious ethos in their students. Because Catholic schools also seek to instill religious, moral, and cultural values that serve society at large, this is also a book for readers outside the Catholic school system.
