OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
Greetings in the Lord!
During this time of COVID-19 pandemic, I want to wish health and grace to you and your loved ones.
I am the new Superintendent of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of El Paso. I arrived and began my work this summer with its challenges to our community and our schools. Catholic education has not only been my career; it has been the course of my life. I am a product of Catholic education (diplomas from elementary and high schools, and three degrees from Catholic universities). I am excited to begin my 37th year as a Catholic school educator here in El Paso.
I want to thank you for your interest in our schools. We are a vibrant community of 11 schools housed in nine separate institutions, consisting of eight coeducational elementary schools, one single-sex middle school (girls), two single-sex high schools (one boys and one girls), and one coeducational high school.
Each of our schools has its own unique setting, culture, and gifts. We all, however, share a love of learning and the desire for God. We offer stellar academic instruction, a Christ-centered spiritual formation, a growing athletic program, and dynamic co-curricular clubs and activities. These elements offer a spirit-filled environment in which a child will be able to gain a strong moral, spiritual, and academic foundation from which to successfully storm the future. In a caring, supportive, and safe atmosphere, our outstanding schools will foster intellectual curiosity and values formation.
During this time of the pandemic, our schools have made every effort to provide a hygienic and safe campus where students can take part in face-to-face instruction or remotely if required and appropriate. Our goal is to assure that all El Paso Catholic schools are prepared for another academic and spiritually enriching year, while remaining responsive to the developing public health situation, ordinances, and protocols.
I hope you will consider sharing our Catholic school experience. As is often stated in Scripture, “Be not afraid.” Come and let one of our schools be a place you will call home and a people you will call family.
May God bless you abundantly!
