Our Catholic school students are ready to take on a new school year! Many of the Diocese’s 35 schools opened their doors this week, welcoming students with enthusiastic cheers, signs and balloons. Schools are also ushering in the new year with special Masses and prayers as the academic year gets underway. Here’s a snapshot of several first-day photos at a few of our schools. Stay tuned to upcoming editions of The Witness for more features celebrating Catholic education, and be sure to visit www.GoCatholicSchools.org to learn more about the schools in our Diocese.
