Celebrate Catholic Schools Week Jan. 28 – Feb. 3
On behalf of the administration, faculty and staff at St. Patrick Catholic High School, we sincerely appreciate your continuous support of our school and of Catholic education. National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It begins the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2018 is January 28 – February 3. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2018 is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”
We have chosen “Hands” as our school theme. We learn by using our hands. We serve other people with our hands. We lead by guiding people and lifting them up with our hands, and we succeed by using our hands to pay-it-forward. We are clay in the hands of God-the potter. When we pray the Our Father we join our hands to symbolize the joining of our hearts and minds. During Catholic Schools Week 2018, let us strive to become better hands: hands that learn, hands that serve, hands that lead and hands that succeed.
A schedule of events for the week can be found below.
