Catholic Schools Week

Catholic schools around the Diocese of Sioux Falls will be celebrating Catholic Schools week January 26 through February 1. It’s an opportunity to celebrate all that Catholic schools offer and contribute in their communities, dioceses and country, this year under the theme “Catholic Schools, Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”

“There is a strong tradition of Catholic education in our diocese and this week is an important opportunity to celebrate that in our schools and to share the good news of them to the wider community,” said Daryl Thuringer, delegate and director of parish and school services for the diocese.

Since 1974 Catholic Schools week has been sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association. Each school celebrates uniquely but often include days of open houses for those who might be considering Catholic education for their children. One continuing tradition in the Diocese of Sioux Falls is that each student and teacher receives a t-shirt, supplied by Avera, reflecting the theme.
