Called To Be One
In April 2016, Bishop Paul Sirba announced a planning process for the Duluth Area Catholic Schools that “would unify their operations into one city-wide school with multiple campuses” offering a Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade continuum of education. The Called To Be One recommended plan was presented to the Duluth Area Catholic Schools Board on January 12th and the plan was approved by the Board and Bishop Sirba on January 19th.

Inaugural President Search Announced
