Catholic Schools Week in Jan26-Feb1

Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2020 is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.

The students at our school and student’s at all Catholic schools across the nation, are the future and hope of our beloved Catholic Church. Let’s support them in learning and growing in a faith-filled atmosphere that teaches the students to be:

Christ-centered disciples
Active learners
Responsible citizens
Effective communicators

Please keep the students, faculty and staff at St. Francis of Assisi School – and all Catholic schools across the nation – in your prayers during this week.

Tuesday, Jan 28th please join us in supporting Catholic education by donating to our school through the national Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. All donations made to the School during the 24 hours from 9am on this day to 9am on Wednesday, Jan 29th will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $15,000! Please consider a donation to the School during that time.

In next Sunday’s bulletin, there will be more information and a link to the special donation page which will only be available for 24 hours.

Thank you for your support!
