Held annually, Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is a special time of year when all Catholic schools celebrate the gift of Catholic education with their students, administrators, families, friends, church, and communities. The 2017 Catholic Schools Week was held Jan. 29-Feb. 4 in each of the 23 diocesan elementary schools and three high schools. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2017 was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses, and other activities which highlight the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church and our nation.
