Holy Rosary Regional Catholic School, Plymouth Meeting, is planning for Catholic Schools Week by arranging with the seven parishes who support Holy Rosary Regional’s students so that the students (in uniform) can attend their parish’s Masses the week prior, Jan. 19-20, to hand out “thank you” notes to the parishioners for their continued support of the school. The notes will also include an invitation to the school’s open house on Jan. 27.
Other events planned for the week include:
Sunday, Jan. 27
Open House, 1-3 p.m., with book fair continuing until Thursday, Jan. 31.
Monday, Jan. 28
Coffee and danish for Holy Rosary volunteers at 10 a.m. followed by Mass at 11 with flowers and “thank you” notes handed out after communion to school volunteers.
In the afternoon, school children will be decorating and bagging goods for the needy that will have been collected prior to that date in conjunction with Outreach Bag Project, a program of archdiocesan Nutritional Development Services.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
