Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. During the week, schools and parishes focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and Catholic education’s contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
This year, Catholic Schools Week will run all week from January 27 – February 2. The theme for 2019 is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” Many dioceses and schools observe the annual celebration with masses and open houses, encouraging parents to take full advantage of the benefits of local Catholic schools.
Celebrate the following daily themes and celebrations during Catholic Schools Week 2019:
- Sunday: Celebrating your parish
- Monday: Celebrating your community
- Tuesday: Celebrating your students
- Wednesday: Celebrating the nation
- Thursday: Celebrating vocations
- Friday: Celebrating faculty, staff, and volunteers
- Saturday: Celebrating families
The Catholic Schools Week celebration became an annual event in 1974. Catholic Schools Week and the National Marketing Campaign are joint projects of the National Catholic Educational Association, the world’s largest private professional education association, and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the national public policy organization of U.S. bishops.
