Catholic Schools Week, the annual observance highlighting the opportunities a faith-filled education provides to young people and its contributions to the church, local communities and the nation, is Jan. 25-31.
Thousands of students are settling in to new rules and classroom procedures this month. Yet for the 14,000 or so in 35 Catholic elementary and high schools across the Diocese of Phoenix, there’s something familiar that unites them.
The annual Mass and rally are just two ways that Arizona’s 21,000 Catholic school students and the community participate in the national Catholic Schools Week celebration, which ran from Jan. 26 through Feb. 1. The week was filled with fun events, open houses, the Diocesan Spelling Bee and other activities for students, families and the community at large.
