Celebrate Catholic Schools
“What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.” ~Saint John Paul II
Since 1974, Celebrate Catholic Schools Week has meant a week at the end of January full of fun activities, inter-school competitions, and dress down days culminating with a weekly school Mass.
As with most things this year, Celebrate Catholic Schools Week will have a very different meaning for our 20 Catholic schools as we celebrate what makes our schools unique.
While the 2020-21 school year will be remembered as the year of masks, social distancing and hand sanitizer, it will also be recalled as the year of challenges for education in general. Catholic schools have much to celebrate as they often have been a haven of stability for the many families and students benefiting from the mostly in-person Catholic education since the end of August.
Moreover, even during the pandemic, the Diocese of Fall River Catholic schools continue to live out the Catholic faith by integrating the teachings of Jesus Christ into all that is done at the schools every day. Many other educational forums do not have the benefit of someone sitting with each child and helping them learn to pray – which is one of the gifts of Catholic education that has been experienced by so many new families who have recently joined the Catholic school community.
