"I went to St. Gerard's (Paterson) as a young child. Now my daughter is going there to understand how to love Jesus and herself." (Brittany)
"The teachers are really nice. They teach well. The food is very good." (Eanis)
In urban areas, good educational opportunities for children can often be limited. The Diocesan Ministries Appeal helps support urban Catholic education, currently providing assistance to St. Gerard School in Paterson. St. Gerard enriches the lives of its students academically, socially and spiritually so that they can look to a future with endless possibilities.
"We appreciate the donations to the Appeal because it helps low-income children get a Catholic education"
