Archbishop John Myers will join students in celebrating Catholic Schools Week, by visiting the Catholic schools throughout the Archdiocese of Newark.
Bishop David Arias, regional bishop for Hudson County, will also make a school visit to St. Aedan's School in Jersey City Friday morning. The school will be putting on a film festival and "International Food Day," reported the Jersey Journal
Archdiocesan spokesman Jim Goodness said the bishops are visiting schools to let parents know they support Catholic schools. Many Catholic schools across the United States have been closing due to lower enrollments.
Catholic Schools Week began Sunday and will run until Jan. 31.
