Catholic Schools Week
January 30 - February 5
Come See What a Catholic School Can Offer!
The theme for Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Catholic schools have a specific purpose to form students to be good citizens of the world, love God and neighbor and enrich society with the leaven of the gospel and by example of faith.
Catholic Schools Week is January 30-February 5 this year. The annual celebration is an opportunity for Catholic schools across the country to showcase their faith-based education and student success in academics, leadership, volunteerism, the arts and athletics.
Schools also mark the celebration with Masses, open houses, and activities for students, families, faculty, parishioners and the larger community. Events often include recognition of first responders, military personnel, community leaders, bus drivers, teachers and volunteers; special lunches with parents or grandparents; volunteer efforts at local food banks; and lively assemblies or games to heighten school spirit.
Through these events and activities, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to the Church, local communities and the nation.
