A Message from Our
Regional Superintendent

Happy New Year! I hope that our PERCES community had a very blessed Christmas season and that the New Year is filled with many blessings for all!

The month of January brings one of the highlights of our school year… Catholic Schools Week! Our six PERCES schools have many fun events and activities planned that celebrate the gift of Catholic School Education. Each school will share their schedules on their website and social media. Check back next month for highlights and photos from this year’s celebration! 


Catholic Schools Week traditionally kicks off our enrollment process for the upcoming school year. All six schools have Open Houses planned during CSW. Our current families and friends, parishioners and prospective families are encouraged to join us. Please share the good news of our schools with your family and friends who may be looking for a Catholic School Education!


Thank you for your continued support of the mission of Catholic School Education in our region and in our Diocese. May God Bless and Protect you always.



Jonathan Cuniak,


Regional Superintendent for PERCES

Students at Holy Family Catholic School enjoyed a fun evening with their peers at the middle school Snowball dance where they enjoyed a surprise visit from Santa, played games, danced, and ate lots of cotton candy!
Mary of Nazareth Students Volunteer to Help Families in Need
8th grade students at Mary of Nazareth walked to the AGAPE Community Center in McKeesport to help sort toys that will be given out to needy families in the McKeesport Area. AGAPE was incredibly grateful for the students' help with this work. 
Divine Mercy Academy Students get Festive with STEM
First graders at DMA designed devices in their STEM class to protect "humpty dumpty" (a real egg) from hurting himself when falling... all while dressed in their spirit week fashion!
