This year’s annual Gaudeamus benefit gala went virtual on Saturday, October 24th, bringing our beloved celebration to supporters’ living rooms, backyards, and parish halls. With forty watch parties and more than one hundred households joining us virtually from as far as Texas, Florida, and North Carolina, this year’s platform allowed for broader participation than ever before.
Classrooms at St. Matthews Catholic School in Topeka are sanitized and safely-distanced awaiting the return of students.
As the fall semester approaches, districts and principals are facing the unprecedented challenge of developing safe and effective plans for bringing students back to school. We sat down with the Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Dr. Vince Cascone, to talk about the three-pronged plan our Archdiocese has created for Catholic schools, the team that's created it, and the benefits that come with the independence of Catholic schools.
The U.S. Supreme Court today affirmed that parents have the right to choose any private school—religiously affiliated or not—for their children in a school choice program. The court ruling centered around a tax credit scholarship program, the most popular type of school choice program. CEF operates a Tax Credit Scholarship program for at-risk, low-income students in Northeast Kansas, and this Supreme Court ruling protects its constitutionality. The CEF Tax Credit Scholarship program provides a 70% Kansas state tax credit for donations to our charity.
In 2006, CEF established the Antoinette D. Berkel Memorial Scholarships. These scholarships are awarded each summer to Wyandotte County Catholic school students who exemplify a caring heart and a dedication to community service.
