National Catholic Schools Week

  • What is National Catholic Schools Week?

    National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week. The theme for the National Catholic Schools throughout the country changes year to year.   Schools typically observe the annual celebration week 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 to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.  Catholic Schools Week began in 1974 and is a joint project of the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  


    Catholic Schools Week is scheduled for the last Sunday in January. 

    A schedule of daily fun events is published in the weekly newsletter for all to see and enjoy.
