The last week in January is Catholic Schools Week.
This is an exciting week for Norwalk Catholic School. Many, many activities are planned. Everyone is invited to celebrate with us. At our church services throughout the weekend of Jan. 27 and 28, Norwalk Catholic School students will participate in special ways. A pancake breakfast will be served from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 28 in the elementary school cafeteria.
Also, the public is invited to an open house of all buildings at Norwalk Catholic School from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.
The fifth-graders will present their concert at 12:30 p.m. in the Joan C. Camp Auditorium. Student projects like an "ice" hotel Mrs. Bungard's third graders are busy creating out of sugar cubes will be on display. Teachers and administrators will be in the buildings. The public is invited and will be warmly welcomed. We are proud of our schools, grateful to all for their help and support in making them successful and excited to show them off.
The theme for Catholic Schools Week this year is "Catholic Schools, The Good News in Education." During the week, we will share about the good news of our parishes, faculty, students, volunteers, community and parish. High school students will be going on a "Prayer Pilgrimage" to pray for those in our community. Students will participate in a canned food drive and classroom doors will be judged on how "divinely" decorated they are.
The public is also invited to our spaghetti Dinner from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 1 in the Early Childhood Center at the St. Mary Campus
We will end the week with a grand celebration of our faith, an all-school Mass at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 2 at St. Paul Church. We will be using our "Gathering Space" with video hook up if needed for extra seating so "All Are Welcome" once again.
It's Catholic Schools Week! Come celebrate with us!
