Celebrating Catholic Schools Week 2021
The theme for Catholic Schools Week, which began January 31 and continues to February 6, 2021, is Catholic Education: Faith. Excellence. Service. This theme beautifully captures the commitment of our principals, teachers, and staff to serve our students, providing them an education that is both faithful to the Catholic Church and excellent in academic standards. With the COVID-19 pandemic, our schools have bravely navigated health plans and safety protocols to continue providing students excellent in-person and virtual Catholic education.

We need Catholic education today now more than ever. Catholic schools are an essential ministry of the Church and are evidence of God’s love throughout our communities.
This past year, we were challenged to build character and academic capabilities in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for the powerful response from our Catholic schools across the 10-county archdiocese – from school administrators, teachers and staff, as well as parents and families.
When we chose the archdiocesan Catholic schools theme of “We teach you like family,” we had no idea how fitting it would become. Given the realities of pandemic learning, our theme could easily be restated as “We teach you with family.” Through it all, we’ve leaned on each other as a Catholic school family –one that not only supports the child, but also supports the parent/s and families involved in the child’s formation.
As we continue to adapt and evolve in these unique times, the promise to deliver the best education for a healthy mind, body and spirit remains stronger than ever. Our school staff cares for and welcomes students and families of all faiths, while providing hope, security and safety at a time when it is needed most. By sending your child to a Catholic school, you are helping your son or daughter grow into a faithful citizen that will make our community a better place.
