Catholic Schools Week is a time of celebration and renewal. It offers us an opportunity to celebrate the success of your schools in the spiritual, intellectual, and social development of our children and young people. 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.

– Ms. Savage
