The Archdiocese of Philadelphia joined in the national observance of Catholic Schools Week Jan. 26 to Feb. 1. Catholic Schools Week is an annual celebration of the values-centered, faith-filled education that students receive in Catholic elementary, secondary and special education schools. The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2014 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Schools throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia held various activities throughout the week to highlight the values of faith, knowledge and service found in the 123 elementary schools, 17 high schools and four schools of special education.
