If you are hired by one of the schools of the Diocese, you will be required to attend an orientation session which is held in mid-August. This session offers faculty members who are new to the Diocese an opportunity to learn about our mission as Catholic educators and to become familiar with personnel policies and benefit programs available to school employees. Your principal will inform you of the date, time and location.
