Catholic Schools Week 2020

Each year the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) marks the last week of January as "National Catholic Schools Week."  The theme is "Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed." This theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, we, as educators, are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed. We will celebrate the daily themes with prayer and different activities.

The daily themes are:  

Sunday, Celebrating our Parish
Monday, Celebrating our Community
Tuesday, Celebrating our Students
Wednesday, Celebrating our Nation
Thursday, Celebrating Vocations
Friday, Celebrating our Faculty and Staff
Saturday, Celebrating our Families

Let us pray:  Loving God, we give you thanks for the gift of Catholic Schools.  As we begin to celebrate Catholic Schools Week, help us to be always aware of the blessing of your community and the chance for each of us to be members of it.  We thank you for the opportunity to attend a school where we can live out your Gospel, and be shaped as your disciples.  Amen

Take some time this week to look back over your Catholic education and thank a teacher who has had an impact on your life.  Cherish the memories that made your education great and pray for those who are receiving it today that their experience will be as rich as yours was.
