Catholic Schools Week is an exciting and eventful time for our students at St. Patrick Catholic School. This year we will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week from Saturday, January 28, through Friday, February 3. During the week our students and staff will participate in activities for faith, excellence, service, and fun. Download your copy of the activities below.
Saturday, January 28, our students will help lead the 5 PM Mass with Father Ivan. They will be helping with the readings, ushering, and singing. Our students work hard all year and this is a great way for them to share their faith and leadership skills with the parish.
One of the most meaningful activities during Catholic Schools Week is our school Mass. This year the school Mass will be held on Tuesday, January 31, at 10:30 AM. We are blessed to have Archbishop Jackels joining us in celebrating this Mass with Father Ivan, our students, and staff.
Parents, please check your child’s folder and backpack for Tuition Tax Credit Statements. If you have any questions or don’t receive it, please reach out to Laura Lockert.
Note: Our next Catholic School Board Meeting is Thursday, January 26, at 6 PM in the Parish Commons. The agenda will be linked to our school calendar next week. Anyone is welcome to sit in and hear what is going on. Thank you to the parents who are serving our school as members of the board.
Students love how Father Ivan involves them in his homilies. They are eager to answer the questions he poses to them at each Mass.
