Catholic Schools Week 2023

Submitted by Betty Montgomery on Fri, 01/27/2023 - 13:54

The 2023 Catholic Schools Week Kicks off on Sunday, January 39!


What is National Catholic Schools Week?

“Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week has been the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2023 is January 29 – February 4. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2023 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” 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.” -


St. Mary Interparochial School has several wonderful events planned for CSW! Please see the attachment for the full CSW Brochure.
