.- Catholics across the country are encouraged to celebrate the quality education Catholic schools offer during Catholic Schools Week, which begins on the last Sunday of January and runs from Jan. 29 to Feb. 4.
This year’s theme of the annual event is “Catholic Schools: Character. Compassion. Values.” The National Appreciation Day For Catholic Schools is Feb. 1
During this week of recognition, schools will plan special celebrations and community events. In past years, schools have organized, among other things, open houses, fairs and liturgies.
Catholic Schools Week and the National Marketing Campaign For Catholic Schools is a joint project between the National Catholic Educational Association and the U.S. bishops’ conference.
