The Catholic School System is a result of over one hundred years of gradual development. The present organization is of comparatively recent date. However, from the first school inaugurated in 1824, to the last one in 1924, the Catholic schools have run hand in hand with the Catholic Church. "The individual school, though a distinct unit in itself, has been an inseparable part of the Catholic School System in the diocese, and, furthermore, of the Apostolate of the Catholic Church in the State".
