Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2022 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.”

Catholic Schools in Vermont will hold their own celebrations throughout the week and Bishop Christopher Coyne will be visiting some of the schools and celebrating Mass with them. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities, and our nation.
