CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
|A Message from Bishop Mark|
Catholic Schools Week begins January 26th!
This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”
For Catholics learning is not simply informational but formational. Catholic education invites young people to view the world and all its wonders through a vision of faith: to learn why God made the world, us and for what purpose each one has been put on this earth. Our Catholic schools can freely speak of science in connection to our faith which is increasingly important in our world that demands separation of the two. The Catholic vision for humanity fosters lasting values that build personhood and character. We are grateful to all our parishes for contributing to making this a viable opportunity here in the North Region.
In the North Region, we have 18 elementary schools, 3 middle & high schools combined, and 3 high schools. All of these schools enhance opportunities for our youngest members and are a tremendous place of faith and learning that I hope all our parishes support.
The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2020 is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” During the week schools typically celebrate with Masses, open houses, and other activities for students, families, parishioners, and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
Support our schools! Encourage enrollment in our Catholic Schools in the North Region!
