GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.— The Diocese of Grand Rapids has hired two more people to ramp up enrollment for its Catholic schools.

Dan Plachta will serve as an admissions enrollment field consultant, guiding the diocese’s 29 schools in outreach and recruitment. While supporting current students, the diocese plans to focus on traditionally underserved groups who could take advantage of school tuition assistance, which is quadrupling to $1,000,000.

Plachta is an alumnus of Blessed Sacrament School (now All Saints Academy) and Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids.

“As a graduate of Catholic schools in the diocese, Dan brings a personal passion for the importance of Catholic education in West Michigan,” said David Faber, superintendent of Catholic schools.

It's Apple Picking time on the Ridge

It's Apple Picking time on the Ridge

While driving on Cordes Ave NW, just off 4 Mile Rd, I was amazed at how many apples are on the trees and looking so pretty. They look like they are ripe and ready to be picked.

This is a great time of year to take the family out to get your fall and winter supply of apples, especially if you have a cool place to store them. It's an opportunity to get out into the fresh country air, pick some apples and let the kids know just where those apples they eat come from.
