Diocese Names New Superintendent of Schools
On behalf of Bishop Cote, I would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. George Milot who has served as Superintendent of Schools, ad interim throughout the past year. As we are all aware, this has been an unusual and challenging year for our schools.

Superintendent's Letter: A Very Special School Year Concludes
Dear Friends, As we enter the month of June, the end of a very special school year for our Catholic schools is upon us. Bishop Cote’s decision to have all schools open with in-person learning has proven to be a wonderful success story. While most public schools reverted to virtual learning, our students were able to have in-school instruction with only a few bumps in the road. We’ve learned a lot from our students and teachers about their experiences and I would like to include some observations from them about this school year: Grade 1 student: “I l...
