This endeavor is
dedicated to the thousands of women and men religious, lay teachers,
parents and clergy who are responsible for the development of
the Catholic high schools in America. Without their interest,
dedication, prayers and just plain hard work, millions of Americans
would not have been able to experience a Catholic high school
most especially, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, NY who
sponsored and staffed more than 100 schools, hospitals and other
institutions in the Diocese of Brooklyn, including my own high
school, pictured above, The Mary Louis Academy in New York.
The Sisters of
St. Joseph, Brentwood are today, the only community of Women
Religious who still sponsor and staff eight high schools in the
Diocese of Brooklyn and the Diocese of Rockville Centre.
