The Catholic Schools Week 2021 theme is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.”
Catholic schools have a 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.
As communities of faith, Catholic schools instill in students their destiny to become saints. Academic excellence is the hallmark of Catholic education intentionally directed to the growth of the whole person – mind, body and spirit. Finally, service is fundamental to Catholic education and the core of Catholic discipleship.
Service is intended to help form people who are not only witnesses to Catholic social teaching, but also active participants through social learning.
