National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It runs all week, from January 31 to February 6. Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, an open house 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. More information for local Catholic Schools Week events may be found at your local diocese and parish school websites.
