Our Regional School
Several years ago, the Archbishop of Philadelphia at the time formed a Blue Ribbon Commission to study Catholic Education throughout the Archdiocese. This Commission made many detailed recommendations for the effective and sustainable continuation of Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
The concept of the Parish School, with which so many of us are familiar, and which brought untold benefits to the Catholic children of the United States cannot always be maintained today. The Blue Ribbon Commission recommended the formation of many Regional Schools. A Regional School is one in which several parishes come together to maintain a Catholic School in order to provide a Catholic Elementary education for the children of those parishes whose parents desire a parochial school education for their children.
The children continue to receive their Sacraments in their own Parish and they see their Pastor on a regular basis as he celebrates the First Friday Masses for the school children, hears their Confessions at school, etc.
Holy Saviour Parish is part of Holy Rosary Regional Catholic School in Plymouth Meeting. The Pastor, along with the three pastors of the other “feeder” parishes, is a member of the Governing Board of Pastors. The Parish subsidizes its parish children $1,000.00 each in order to assist in making Catholic education more affordable. Please do not hesitate to contact the Pastor with any questions concerning the catholic education of your child or children.
