Catholic Schools Celebrate Gift of Exceptional Academic Education Rooted in Gospel Message

CSW web

SAGINAW — In Catholic schools across the nation, and here in the Diocese of Saginaw, a celebration is underway this week. National Catholic Schools Week, January 25-31, is an opportunity to recognize the great gift of Catholic schools to faith and local communities. This year’s theme is Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.

“At the beginning of the school year, I traveled to each of our Catholic schools to celebrate Mass for our students, educators and families,” said the Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw. “I asked the students to each morning, when they wake up and throughout the day, make Jesus Christ the center of their lives. It is a great blessing we have in Catholic schools to encourage our students and educators to become more like Jesus. We are shaping the future leaders of our county, and also our Church.”

The classroom environment provides instruction, discussion and interaction between teachers and students with the daily opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ. The strength of Catholic schools is nurtured through an integrated approach to education that combines rigorous academic instruction with spiritual development.
