SAN DIEGO — The annual weeklong celebration of Catholic education in the United States will be observed from Sunday, Jan. 29, through Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023.
The current National Catholic Schools Week theme is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.”
The week helps to showcase what makes Catholic schools the right choice for parents, including families exploring this education for their children.
“The purpose (of National Catholic Schools Week) is to celebrate and honor all the wonderful contributions our Catholic schools make to their communities, the larger community and the world,” explained Leticia Oseguera, superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of San Diego. “We want to recognize the different members of the Catholic school community that make this possible and celebrate the wonderful work taking place at each school.”
Schools typically observe the week with Masses, open houses, assemblies and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Schools often also invite special guests, go out into the community to serve, and find ways to express gratitude to their families for their commitment to Catholic education.
Those interested in finding out more about a particular campus’ activities may phone the school or visit its website.
Applications for Catholic school are accepted year-round and financial aid is available for qualifying families. More information is available from the Office for Schools at sdcatholicschools.org. The office also will be sharing images from Catholic Schools Week activities on its social media.
