Catholic Schools Week 2017-Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.

National Catholic Schools Week 2017 will be observed in dioceses around the country, Jan. 29 to Feb. 4.  Throughout the Diocese of Cleveland next week, schools are scheduling Masses, special activities and open houses to showcase the important faith-building, academic and societal contributions provided by a Catholic education.  This year’s theme is, “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”

“When I ask students what the best part of their school is, they reply, ‘It’s like a family here; people know me and care about me,’” said Christopher Knight, secretary for catechetical formation and education, and superintendent of schools in the Diocese of Cleveland.  “Each day, students encounter Jesus Christ and develop a personal relationship with him, who is the model teacher and student.”
