Catholic School Week is fast approaching this year and will be celebrated January 28th through February 3rd. What is Catholic School Week? Since 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. 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. To kick off Catholic Schools week on Tuesday it will be “donut day” there will be donuts in the morning in the CYO. On Wednesday, its “celebrating the nations Catholic schools” you can wear any catholic college or school shirt or sweatshirt with school bottoms. Also, on Wednesday there will be homeroom activities going on. On Thursday there will be a Sophomore and Junior retreat day. To end our Catholic School Week we will be having a jeans day with a Heelan shirt on Friday followed by a noon dismissal. Catholic Schools Week is a good week to remember that Catholic schools offer academic excellence and faith-filled education for students nationwide.
