Dear McDevitt Family,
Bishop McDevitt High School matters. The story of Bishop McDevitt matters. The people of McDevitt matter. Over the course of the last 60 years, Bishop McDevitt High School has shaped the lives of thousands of students, but it has also done something much more. Our school has helped shape the very history of this world. And it has done so by remaining true to its founding mission rooted in the story of the Christ.
The commitment made by the Church over 6 decades ago to bring Catholic education to the communities surrounding Wyncote, PA has resulted in multiple generations of men and women sent forth into the world to make real the Gospel message and prepare the way of the Lord.
Catholic education matters. It matters because it fundamentally alters a person for the better. It matters because it helps generate better mothers and fathers, better employees, better citizens, better friends, and better leaders.
For the last sixty years, Bishop McDevitt has been impacting the world outside the building walls. It has been helping make a better world. For that simple (and incredibly important) reason, let us remember that Our Story Matters.
December 7, 2018 marks the 60th Anniversary of Bishop McDevitt High School. In honor of this momentous date, we have launched a campaign to raise funds to support the future of our beloved school and to preserve this story for future generations. Moreover, we believe this 60th Anniversary Campaign will lay the very foundation to ensure that McDevitt continues to serve the seminal mission of the Church to make God’s love known for the next 60 years.
I encourage you to visit the 60th Campaign website to learn more about the 21st Century School initiative that is the cornerstone on which we will construct the next chapters in the story of Bishop McDevitt High School.
You can access the site here: https://www.mcdevitths.org/60th-anniversary/
Together, we have the power to shape the future of McDevitt and, in so doing, the world. Together we can preserve Catholic education in this part of the world. Together we can ensure that Bishop McDevitt High School remains a vibrant and essential educational institution able to carry forward the proud and vital tradition of the Royal Lancers.
WE OWN THIS. THIS IS OUR STORY. AND OUR STORY MATTERS.
If you donate to McDevitt on a regular or annual basis, we ask that you consider providing an additional gift this year to support this important initiative.
If you are not currently able to give on an annual or regular basis, we ask that you consider a gift this year to support this special campaign.
