Catholic Schools Week organizers offer daily themes

Special to The Message

Catholic schools across the Diocese of Evansville will celebrate National Catholic Schools Week Jan. 29-Feb. 4. Interim Superintendent of Schools Michelle Priar discusses it in a story that appears elsewhere on this page. 

Bishop Joseph M. Siegel will celebrate the annual Catholic Schools Week Mass Jan 31 at St. Benedict Cathedral in Evansville, and our schools will welcome families to Come and See events Feb. 2.

The National Catholic Educational Association, which organizes events surrounding Catholic Schools Week, also have produced a set of option daily themes that some schools may choose to use to celebrate the 2023 observance. Those themes include:

  • Jan. 29 – Celebrating your parish
  • Jan. 30 – Celebrating your community
  • Jan. 31 – Celebrating Catholic school students
  • Feb. 1 – Celebrating the nation
  • Feb. 2 – Celebrating vocations
  • Feb. 3 – Celebrating faculty, staff and volunteers
  • Feb. 4 – Celebrating families
