Supporting Catholic Education

One of the most importantways to do this is by directing your tax support on your municipal taxassessment form to the separate school board. By doing this you will besending a powerful message to the provincial government and the broadercommunity about the importance and need for a Catholic school system.

Why is declaring yourself a Catholic school supporter so important?
