STA Catholic Schools Week 2015


Catholic Schools Week 2015
Bishop of Rockville Centre, William Francis Murphy




Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Catholic Schools Week will be celebrated around our nation from January 25 -31, 2015. Once again, the theme for this year is Catholic Schools - Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. This theme truly captures the essence of Catholic schools. Our schools strive to build community, share faith, increase our students’ knowledge and encourage them to give service. It has been my experience as I visit the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre that our administrators, teachers and parents are committed to making sure that each student lives up to his or her potential to learn and to be formed in the Catholic faith.
