Catholic Schools and Parental Choice
The education of children and young people is such an important task in forming them as free and responsible human beings.
It affirms their dignity as an inalienable gift that flows from our original creation as children made in the image and likeness
of God. And because education truly forms human beings, it is especially the duty and responsibility of the Church, who is
called to serve mankind from the heart of God and in such a way that no other institution can.
– Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis)
