Catholic Schools Week

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK

Established 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of

Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and

runs all week, which in 2017 is January 29 – February 4. The theme for the

National Catholic Schools Week 2017 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of

Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Schools typically observe the annual

celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students,

families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools

focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its

contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. We are proud to

be an amazing Catholic School and are excited to celebrate our community!
