This week is Catholic Schools Week—the 40th one--a week dear to my heart, having worked in Catholic Schools for nearly 50 years. It was always the funnest” week of the year. The theme this year is: Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. God bless parishes, staff, parents and all associated with Catholic Education. You are in my prayers. You do a great job.
