Catholic Schools Week 2015
January 25 to January 31st, 2015
Theme: Catholic Schools:
Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service
At St. Ignatius and across the United States, Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of Catholic education. The National Catholic Education Association (NECA) selects a theme and each school plans activities around this theme. At St. Ignatius, Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of all the elements of our school that make it such a great place- students, parents, faculty, staff, friends, and the entire parish community.
Explanation of This Year's Theme (Taken from the NCEA):
The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2015 is January 25 to January 31. Schools typically celebrate Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open houses, and other activities for students, families, parishioners, and the community at large.
The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities—small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged.
