Forty-Third Annual Catholic Schools Week Begins Sunday, January 28

ST. LOUIS – The annual celebration of Catholic Schools Week across the country and in the 133 schools of the Archdiocese of St. Louis begins Sunday, January 28. Each school around the archdiocese will hold its own unique celebration, with Masses, open houses, and other activities for the nearly 37,000 students, their families, parishioners, and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: Learn. serve. Lead. Succeed.”

Most Catholic elementary schools will host an Open House on Sunday, January 28, or during the week. For a complete list of open houses and additional information about Catholic Schools Week, visit
