January 24th Edition – Service and Leadership
CTN is very proud to introduce The Tablet Jr., the newest addition to the diocesan newspaper. The Tablet Jr. is a monthly four-page pullout for elementary school children. The articles and artwork you see are created by the students of diocesan academies, and each month there will be a new theme and a new academy.
“Service and Leadership” is the theme of this first edition, which coincides with Catholic Schools Week. St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy in Belle Harbor is the first academy to showcase its journalistic skills.
