Catholic Schools Week

What is National Catholic Schools Week?

National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts on Sunday, January 29 and ends on Friday, February 3. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2017 is "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service."  

Saint Andrew will be observing the annual celebration week with Mass, an open house and tours, a faith rally, Grandparents Day and other activities for our school community. Through these events, we will focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
