Catholic Schools Week 2016

 

Catholic Schools Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service

The week of January 31-February 6, 2016 is the 42nd Anniversary of Catholic Schools Week, a national celebration of Catholic education. This year’s theme is “Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The theme highlights several concepts that are at the very core of Catholic education. Catholic schools are communities of faith, where we proudly teach students about God as we openly pray and worship God on a daily basis. Regular classroom prayers and liturgies form minds, hearts and souls of students, helping them to live as committed Christian disciples. Catholic schools are communities of knowledge as intellectual tradition shows us that faith and knowledge each illuminate the other and allow us to pursue truth and reason without fear, because God is the source of all knowledge and truth. Catholic schools are communities of service. Service is the key to the Christian life as we express love and care for others. These communities of faith, knowledge and service are what make Catholic schools special, what sets us apart from other educational options.
