This year’s Catholic Schools Week theme and logo should look familiar–in fact, according to the National Catholic Education Association’s website, the theme Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service. will be the annual theme for a 4-year period spanning from 2021-2024, citing Catholic schools’ “specific purpose to form students to be good citizens of the world, love God and neighbor and enrich society with the leaven of the gospel and by example of faith.”
At Saint Mary’s Catholic School, we are looking forward to yet another fantastic week of celebrating our incredible community. Below is a sneak peek of what our Planning Committee has in store for us! As we approach #CSW22, we will continue to provide updates and send reminders so that you can partake in every moment of celebration with us!
