Dear Catholic High Community,

Like others around the country, many in the Catholic High community are deeply saddened and troubled by the killing of George Floyd. His death is a painful and horrifying reminder of the deep-seated racism that continues to plague our nation and of the deep wounds it causes our sisters and brothers in the black community.

Since the death of George Floyd, we have heard from several of our alumnae, many of whom are African-American, expressing their own painful memories and experiences with racism while at Catholic High. We are saddened but grateful to learn what you have shared, and assure you that we are listening.

We apologize for any pain, hurt, and suffering you experienced during your time at Catholic High. The voices we have heard are from young women who matter to us and will always matter to us. We can and must do better.

At our foundation, we are Franciscan. We are also a family. Being a family means loving and accepting everyone equally and unconditionally. Catholic High remains committed to fostering a climate and culture of acceptance, diversity, and inclusion for all members of our school community. It is clear from what many of you have shared that we have not always lived up to that promise. We can and must enact change.

We must continue to let our light shine and together we can effect change for a better tomorrow.

The Administration of The Catholic High School of Baltimore
