Urban Catholic Education: Tales of Twelve American Cities traces the history and development of Catholic schools in twelve urban areas of the United States. These twelve essays provide a glimpse into the history and context in which the largest private school system began. Built on the dedication and sacrifice of countless vowed religious, Catholic schools faced challenges of building, staffing, financing, and even anti-Catholic sentiment. This is a history rich in wisdom and experience, detailing the vision and passion of what was once an immigrant church.
