Celebrate Catholic Schools Week

National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It was started in 1974 by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, this year Jan. 26-Feb. 1. The current theme is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”

Schools typically observe the week with Masses, assemblies and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members.

Visit the Arlington Catholic Herald website to learn more about this year's theme and read stories highlighting how our diocesan Catholic schools provide on-going faith formation to develop each students' God-given gifts and prepare them for success.
