The Pledge-A-Thon was a huge success…not only measured by the actual dollars pledged, but more importantly by the generosity of each and every person who contributed time, money and talent to this fundraiser.


Special thanks go out to Mr. Barry Winters and Mrs. Joan Franks at Park National Bank for allowing us to use their offices and phones to make calls on Saturday. Also thanks to the Class of 1959 for your generous donation of $660. Your kindness is truly appreciated!

Catholic Schools of Licking County launch new web site

October 6, 2015

logo-squareOver the past year, the principals and priests from all three Licking County Catholic Schools have been collaborating on ways to inform the community and interested families about Catholic education in Licking County. A web site has been launched to do just that. Catholic Schools of Licking County is a collaborative effort of St. Francis de Sales School, Blessed Sacrament School and Newark Catholic High School to support and maintain the legacy of Catholic education for generations to come.


This is a first-ever joint effort to herald the academic excellence and spiritual development students have received since 1858, when the first Catholic School in Licking County (St. Francis de Sales) opened it’s doors. To learn more history and see a timeline, please go here.


Please LIKE the Catholic Schools of Licking County Facebook page to view photos of students from all three schools.


Today, Bishop Frederick F. Campbell gave mass at St. Francis de Sales to students from Newark Catholic, Blessed Sacrament and St. Francis. Campbell, who is the Bishop of Columbus came to Newark to help celebrate Catholic Schools Week. Photos from Mass can be seen at online at the Newark Advocate.
