Catholic Schools Week begins Jan. 26

“COMMUNITIES OF FAITH, KNOWLEDGE, AND SERVICE”

Catholic Schools Week 2014 will run from Sunday, Jan. 26 through Saturday, Feb. 1, with 20 Diocese of Rochester schools celebrating the benefits of Catholic schooling by hosting multiple events throughout the week.

“Catholic Schools Week highlights our wonderful Catholic schools communities as part of a national celebration of Catholic school education. In connecting with our current and prospective families, our Diocese of Rochester faculty and staff are able to showcase the loving environments present at our schools,” said Anthony Cook, superintendent of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Rochester. “If you are considering a Catholic school education for your children, please make every attempt to visit one of our schools during Catholic Schools Week.”

Catholic Schools Week began in 1974 and always begins the last Sunday in January. There are currently more than 6,600 Catholic schools around the country with a combined total of approximately 2.1 million students. The 20 schools in the Diocese of Rochester have a total of 4,175 for students Pre-K through 8th grade (as of Jan. 1, 2014).
