Elias Moo on the Renewal of Parochial Schools

In this episode, Elias Moo, superintendent of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Denver, joins hosts Kimberly Begg and Shawn Peterson to discuss the urgent need to renew the Catholicity of Catholic schools. He addresses how secularization has led schools to prioritize worldly outcomes over human formation according to church teachings, emphasizing the impact of the COVID lockdowns in highlighting these flaws and prompting a call for change. Moo also advocates for the reclaiming of the bishops’ and pastors’ roles in overseeing Catholic identity, scrutinizes accreditation processes, and stresses the importance of ongoing formation programs to cultivate a unified vision between home and school.
