2017 SUCCESS Annual Campaign
Dear Friends of Holy Family Catholic School,
For over 20 years, Holy Family Catholic School has been the heartbeat of North Idaho, its reach and impact extending beyond the school grounds into our parishes, the larger community, and the world.
Holy Family is a place where the teaching and practice of the Catholic faith are lived every day. Working in partnership, teachers and parents nourish the gifts uniquely given to each child by God, focusing on the whole person—spirit, mind, and body. This environment promotes academic excellence built on the principles of service, stewardship, moral development, and leadership, laying a foundation that points the way for students to reach their full potential while also preparing them for eternal life.
The results speak for themselves. In 2015*, 100% of Holy Family alumni graduated from high school (compared to 83% nationally), and 83% attended college (compared to 69% nationally). However, the true measure of Holy Family’s success is found outside of the classroom where students, transformed by the message of the Gospel, share it in words and actions with others.
Holy Family welcomes all families seeking a high-quality, faith-based education for their child(ren), regardless of their economic means. The tuition families pay only covers about half of the actual cost to educate a student, and Holy Family gives out over $200,000 in tuition assistance annually. The SUCCESS (Standing Up for Continuing Catholic Education Supporting Students) Annual Campaign is the primary way the school raises money to ensure that excellence in education is available to everyone.
I invite you to please take this opportunity to show your commitment to Catholic education by prayerfully making your pledge or one-time gift to Holy Family’s 2017 SUCCESS Annual Campaign. Every gift truly makes a difference. Thank you for your support.
I remain sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Peter F. Christensen, D.D.
Bishop of the Diocese of Boise
