Catholic Schools Week 2024!

National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. This year’s new theme is 'Catholic Schools: United in Faith and Community' and will be used through 2026.

Catholic schools have an irreplaceable role in the Church’s evangelizing mission. Building on the central goal of Catholic schools to form saints, Catholic schools teach and embrace the whole person, body, mind and spirit. The fact that all members of a Catholic school community share the Christian vision of faith that Christ is the foundation of Catholic education is what unites the school as a faith-filled community.

While faith is the binding element in Catholic schools, the Church reiterates that parents are the first teachers of their children. Holding this tenet, Catholic school communities expand beyond the walls of school buildings to envelop the family as an integral part of the school community. Together teachers, administrators, staff, students and parents fuel the light of faith by integrating culture with faith and faith with living.

The CSW logo symbolizes the united community of Catholic schools – not a building or an institution, but people of faith serving God and others. No Catholic school can fulfill its educational role alone. As a community, Catholic schools are nourished and stimulated by the centrality of the word of Christ expressed through knowledge, service, scripture and sacramental tradition.

Catholic Schools: United in Faith and Community is a theme on which to build a spirit of the gospel to benefit the human family.   

The annual week long celebration of Catholic Schools will be held 

January 28 - February 2, 2024.

We have so much to celebrate at Saint Dominic School! The week will involve activities for students, faculty, staff, Clergy, & Volunteers!
