Greenville Getting Catholic High School

Greenville will finally be getting a Catholic high school. Pope John Paul II Catholic High School has been given the okay from the Raleigh Diocese.

The school, which will begin at St. Gabriel Catholic Church, will start with a ninth grade of between 25-30 students in August. The diocese says each year a grade will be added until the school reaches the 9-12 grade configuration.

Future plans call for a new high school to be built on land adjacent to St. Gabriel that's already been purchased. The diocese says long range plans call for the construction of a four-year high school to accommodate at least 400 students.

The new school will be the second high school operated by the diocese. The other is Cardinal Gibbons in Raleigh.

    If anyone has any questions about our Catholic Faith, Please come to a weekday mass or weekend Mass. We are so very blessed to have the most wonderful Passionist Priests, and a beautiful church to Love the Lord and our community with all of our heart. We celebrate the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist. On Thursday evenings, we have a faith formation class to all that have questions about the faith. Jesus gave the Keys to Peter, and built the Church upon the Rock. Visit the Vatican in Rome if you want to find our about the beginnings of the one true Church, the Roman Catholic Church, and Yes, it began with the Son of God...Jesus. We love his Mother Mary...that God chose without sin to be the Mother of God. He sent his only son to die for our sins, so we may have eternal life. go to the St. Peter's website for Mass times. all are welcome

    To Bill, we all believe in our own religion and I am Cathloic. So telling me that we are a deceiving religion I take offense to that. Please just worship in your own way and let me pratice in my own way.

    Enjoy your gun ridden, crime infested schools. I, for one, will look into this.

    keep your comments to yourself. Nobody cares what a teacher thinks. You should now this by now. If you have an opinion, don't express it. People don't want to hear from teachers these days.

    Catholics can be saved, it is not and either/or situation. Nothing like a bunch of ignorant, southern, so called "christians" to say that a catholic cannot be saved *and* be catholic. You guys are too funny....
