Catholic Schools Week: January 3 - February 5

Sunday, January 30, 2022 – Catholic Schools Week Kick-off – 10:30 a.m.

We kick off Catholic Schools Week with the biggest event of the week: Mass! We will come together to celebrate at 10:30 Mass in the church. All families are encouraged to attend in person or virtually. Students attending Mass in-person should wear their uniform, so they are easily recognizable and visible to the parishioners who support their education. Following Mass, our parish and school community is invited to coffee and donuts in our school’s courtyard for fellowship. In addition, we will open our classrooms for our families and parishioners to visit.
