We are thrilled to announce an exciting development in our journey. As four dedicated new principals take on leadership roles in both parish and regional schools, they carry with them a profound commitment to instilling the Diocese of Rockville Centre’s Morning Star Initiative (MSI). This visionary plan embodies the essence of Catholic evangelization, breathing life into the Gospel and embarking on a transformative journey to revitalize Catholic elementary education.
Here to Stay!
Parents, choosing educational excellence is one of the most profound decisions you can make for your child’s future! At DRVC, we are excited to introduce the Morning Star Initiative—an encompassing endeavor that embodies the core pillars of our Catholic school philosophy. With an unwavering commitment to fostering a robust Catholic culture, achieving academic excellence, nurturing a safe and supportive community, and boasting a longstanding history of school success and establishment, we invite you to explore the transformative opportunities that await your children within our halls! Diocese of Rockville Catholic Schools not only set the stage for comprehensive growth, but also establish a foundation for lifelong Catholic evangelization rooted in faith, knowledge, and community.
We are thrilled to feature Archbishop Christopher Cardone, OP in our Alumni Spotlight! His journey from Long Island to the Solomon Islands, where he currently serves as Catholic Archbishop of Honiara, is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Archbishop Cardone attended St. Raymond Parochial School in East Rockaway, NY, made his religious profession to the Dominican Order in 1981, received a Bachelor in Sacred Theology and a Masters of Divinity at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington DC, and was ordained as a Dominican priest in 1986. In 1988, he was called to the Dominican vicariate in the Solomon Islands and was named Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Honiara by Pope Francis in June of 2016. We are so proud to call Archbishop Christopher Cardone, OP, one of our own!
