Catholic Schools Week
The Rite of Baptism reminds parents that they are to be “the first teachers of their children in the ways of faith…may they be also the best of teachers.” Parents have a sacred role in helping their children to know and love God and, ultimately, to arrive together in heaven. Our Catholic schools have long be a valuable tool in assisting parents in this mission. Today we begin a week of celebration of the great accomplishment of our Catholic schools in this country. We give thanks for the faith and those who have passed it on faithfully for 2000 years.
