The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston continues to prepare the men who will shepherd the city’s rapidly growing 1.7 million Catholics at St. Mary’s Seminary. On the weekend of the Feast of Corpus Christi (June 13-14, 2020), the local faithful will have the opportunity to directly support Archdiocesan seminarians with the Corpus Christi Collection.
Persistently low enrollment and other serious financial challenges, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic, have forced the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston today to announce it is closing four Catholic schools following the current academic year. The Catholic Schools Office started informing the Pastors and Principals of the respective school communities April 20. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Queen of Peace and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Schools in Houston and St. Pius V Catholic School in Pasadena were informed of this painful but necessary decision.
