January 27th will begin the national observance of Catholic Schools Week. This year’s theme is: Catholic Schools: Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed. The purpose of CSW is to celebrate the benefits and opportunities that catholic schools offer to the community. Catholic schools have a long history in the nation and have been a bedrock of learning, service, and moral teaching since their beginnings. Catholic schools have benefited not only the ongoing formation of Catholics throughout the centuries, but also countless individuals who have walked through their halls and have been touched by their mission.

Teaching, forming, and leading young people to recognize God’s vocation in their lives is our call as Christians and educators. It is part of the mission of the church and a way that we live out the Great Commission of Christ to “go out into the whole world…”
