Mission Statement

The Office of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Fall River is rooted in the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

This message is carried out according to the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church in union with the Diocesan Bishop who is the Chief Teacher in the Diocese.

The Office of Catholic Schools works collaboratively with parochial and diocesan school communities to provide a faith centered, holistic, values-based Catholic school experience. Our students are educated and encouraged to live out their lives as vibrant and committed members of our Church, and – as persons of faith – to be responsible and contributing citizens of their community, our nation and the world.

We pledge:

    • To assist families, the primary educators, and their children entrusted to our care.
    • To work collaboratively with pastors, teachers and Catholic school administrators in fulfilling the Church’s teaching and evangelizing mission in the Catholic schools of the Diocese.
