This afternoon nearly 1,000 Catholic school students, teachers and parents gathered at the State Capitol in support of school choice legislation. During a pre-rally interview, Catholic Education Arizona’s Paul Mulligan (pictured above) highlighted the value a Catholic education provides to young people and Catholic education’s contributions to the community and nation.
Look for his interview during this evening’s newscasts on CBS 5, Fox 10 and ABC 15.
The rally at the Capitol is just one way that Catholic students, families and educators participate in the national Catholic Schools Week celebration.
