St. Francis School Partnership

In response to Bishop Anthony Pilla’s call for solidarity in the region among Catholics in the Cleveland Diocese, Padua began a “Church in the City” partnership with Saint Francis Elementary School on the east side of Cleveland in the mid-1990’s. Since then, our partnership has grown and blossomed into a well-developed relationship which reaches almost all grade levels at both schools.

  • Visiting and playing with the younger students
