Catholic Schools Week is a time of celebration and renewal.

It also provides us an opportunity to accept new challenges. Our theme this year is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service“.

You are cordially invited to participate in the many activities prepared by the students, teachers, and staff for this week. Your attendance at the Family Mass on Saturday, January 28th is especially important. Your presence at these event enriches, supports, and encourages all of us who are involved in your child’s life.
