Catholic Alumni Partnership

Catholic Alumni Partnership

As a St. Pius V School alumnus, you should have received a letter over the summer from Daniel Ferris, the Superintendent of Schools, Catholic Diocese of Providence. Mr. Ferris wrote to introduce a new initiative, The Catholic Alumni Partnership (CAP). As a member of this Partnership, St. Pius V is entering a committed effort to re-engage our alumni, inviting you to stay connected with our school and with each other.

CAP is the creation of the late Robert W. Wilson, a major supporter of scholarships to the Inner-City Scholarship Fund in the Archdiocese of New York. Though he was not Catholic, Mr. Wilson was impressed with what the Catholic schools were doing to educate the poor in New York City. He saw the need for additional funding for Catholic schools. He proposed a program through the Robert W. Wilson Charitable Trust that would work with elementary schools to find and solicit their alumni. In the fall of 2009, CAP was launched in over 300 schools across six arch/dioceses in the Northeast. Inspired by the responses that followed over the next four years, Mr. Wilson decided to support additional dioceses wishing to connect with their elementary school alumni. That decision was the impetus for a second wave of diocesan CAP programs. The Diocese of Providence has been chosen as one of five dioceses nationally for the second cohort.

St. Pius V School is partnering with Diocese in the CAP effort. A second letter went out to you in November from Sr. Mary Veronica, our school's Principal. Here, she described the benefits of this program and how we will be actively connecting with you and staying in touch.
