Catholic Schools Week 2022

Published on
CSW 2022

Today begins national Catholic Schools Week, a week meant to celebrate our communities which have a united goal to educate and raise our children in the Catholic faith. In its 48th year, Catholic schools use this week to open their doors to prospective families, remember and re engage with alumni, express gratitude to parishioners and donors, and so much more. Our 31 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids have planned many exciting events today through February 5. Please visit our Events page or each school's website to find an open house or mass near you. 

Each year, Bishop Walkowiak writes a letter to current parishioners and Catholic education supporters. Within he says, "Catholic schools offer young people the possibility of a daily encounter with Jesus Christ within the context of the highest-quality education. I thank the parents who send their children to Catholic schools. To those of you who work and volunteer in our schools, thank you for sharing your talents and Catholic faith with our students. Without you, the ministry of our Catholic schools would not be possible." To read his full #CSW22 letter, click here: English | Spanish

Additionally, you are welcome to join us live online on Feb. 1 at 10 a.m. for the broadcast of Mass to celebrate the gift of Catholic school education. Each of our schools will send representatives to the Cathedral of St. Andrew while the remaining 6,000 students will join us virtually. 

There are so many good things going on in Catholic schools. Beyond this blog, the most current happenings will be posted to our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. Thank you and Happy Catholic Schools Week!
