The CatholicTV® Network to Celebrate Catholic Schools Week
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (January 25, 2012) The CatholicTV® Network to Celebrate Catholic Schools Week
The CatholicTV® Network will celebrate Catholic Schools Week, scheduled for January 29, 2012 to February 5, 2012, with local schools from the Archdiocese of Boston.
Catholic Schools Week, which celebrates its 40th anniversary next year, is a time for students to celebrate their unique path of learning within the parish, community and nation, organizers state. Festivities across the country will reflect that, most notably open houses for prospective students and public rallies at state capitols supporting school choice.
The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2012 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Academics. Service.” The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2012 is January 29 to February 5. Schools typically celebrate Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open houses and activities for students, families, parishioners and the community at large.
The theme focuses on three priorities that Catholic schools establish that make them stand out from other educational institutions. Children are taught faith – not just the basics of Christianity, but how to have a relationship with God. Academics, which in Catholic schools are held to very high standards, help each child reach his or her potential. Service, the giving of one’s time and effort to help others, is taught both as an expression of faith and good citizenship.
To honor Catholic Schools Weeks, CatholicTV will celebrate Mass with 5 Catholic schools from the Archdiocese of Boston. The schools in attendance will be as follows:
Boston College High School, Dorchester, Massachusetts; Arlington Catholic High School, Arlington, Massachusetts; Monsignor James J. Haddad Middle School, Needham, Massachusetts; St. Jude School, Waltham, Massachusetts; and Mount Alvernia Academy, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
