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. Our parish school, Corpus Christi which is jointly sponsored with Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church. Delved into Catholic Schools Week with Mass at Our Lady of the Lake and ended the week with Mass as St. Francis de Sales.
The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Aside from celebrating Mass at the parish, schools typically observe the annual celebration week with 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.
