We are happy to be able to write to you in this our 15th Anniversary year where we continue to vigorously pursue our mission. Our mission has remained the same: “To build a network of faithful, dynamic, and informed parents, students, and alumni, committed to working with Catholic schools and other programs of education to ensure the authentic teaching and protection of our Catholic Faith.”
CPO was founded in 1998 when a group of parents learned that in our Archdiocese, Catholic high school teachers were being trained as “safe staff” to create a “safe” climate for young people to “explore” their “sexual identities.”
CPO worked tirelessly to inform parents, teachers and clergy that the group, “Catholic Pastoral Committee on Sexual Minorities” (CPCSM) was teaching contrary to Catholic Church teaching. We continue this effort even to this day as CPCSM continues to be active and continues to attempt to portray itself as “Catholic”.
Within the first year, CPO was successful in getting the CPCSM representatives removed from participating in any future training in our Catholic high schools.
The Catholic Parents OnLine Website (catholicparents.org) carries on as a critical tool in providing authentic Catholic education resources to parents, grandparents, teachers and clergy.
This year we are pleased to announce Fr. Robert Altier’s new series: “Beauty, Truth, Goodness: The Fundamentals of Catholicism” which airs on CPO TV every Sunday at 9:30 pm on the Metro Cable Network, channel 6, and can also be viewed on our website. These excellent catechetical teachings are needed now more than ever!
Each year we have the substantial cost of our CPO TV air time. Other expenses include operating our website, the audio and video duplication, and office supplies. Much of our correspondence is done by e-mail; however, many of those who support CPO do not have a computer or internet access. Therefore we do have a few mailings each year and these can be costly.
If you can give $10.00, $25.00, $50.00, $100.00 or any greater amount we would be so grateful. We have never had a large budget to begin with and we believe we have been good stewards of your contributions in the past. No officer or Board member has ever received compensation and virtually no part of your contribution goes to administrative overhead or expense except our limited mailings. We have a small budget and our finances are at an all-time low… We need your help!
