At a time when religious liberties are being politically challenged, it’s worthy to review the massive positive impact Catholic American educational, health and social ministries are now making in communities across the country.

Schooling: There are 1.5 million children in Catholic elementary schools and 580,00 in secondary schools, with an enrollment of close to 1 million in Catholic colleges and universities.

Health Care: The nation’s 630 Catholic hospitals, and 120,000 beds, account for 16 percent of all hospitals, more than 30% being in rural areas, and employ more than 640,000 people. 363 health care centers assist 5,038,247 patients, for a total of 88,519,295 patients annually.
