In this special interview from the 2023 Duc In Altum Summit, Bishop Thomas Daly shares his path to where he is today as the Chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Catholic Education.

Dr. Richard Ludwick, president of University of St. Thomas-Houston, and Bishop Daly, bishop in the Diocese of Spokane, Wash., discuss why Catholic education is crucial for Catholics and the wider world. Bishop Daly describes Catholic school as "essential" in this day and age and shares how Catholics can be "zealous without being zealots."
