Catholic Schools’ Week Message
Our Catholic Schools’ week theme is “Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Since 1886, as a parish we have been blessed with a Catholic School as a part of our mission. For 129 years, students in our school have learned the faith, grown in knowledge, and learned the importance of Christian service.
Over those years, thousands of students have benefited from a Catholic Education. Today Saint Patrick Catholic School continues that rich tradition. There are many benefits for choosing a Catholic Education. Not only does our school provide opportunities to grow in the faith, but is known for its quality education, thanks to our dedicated faculty and staff. Saint Patrick Catholic School provides a family atmosphere and a positive learning environment. Finally, throughout the year our students are given opportunities for service which helps them put what they learn into practice.
As a product of Catholic Education, I have benefited and continue to see the value of our Catholic Schools and as the pastor of Saint Patrick Church, I would like to invite our families to consider our school for their children. I know times are difficult for many people, so let me take this opportunity to thank those families who make the sacrifice of sending their children to our school. For those considering a Catholic School but are hesitant because of the financial obligation, please make it a point to come talk with us so that we can investigate avenues so that your child/children could benefit from a Catholic Education. For more information about Saint Patrick Catholic School, please call us at 854-8263.
While I am a strong supporter and advocate of Catholic Education, I also use Catholic Schools’ Week to thank our volunteer catechists and parents who send their children to our Religious Education program. I also thank those parents who educate their children at home. Parents are the primary educators of their children. Thanks goes out to you, our parishioners, for none of this would be possible without your prayerful and generous support. As we move forward, may we pledge to continue to work together to provide quality Catholic Education for many years to come!
