National Catholic Schools Week
Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.
January 30-February 5, 2022
Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2022 is January 30 – February 5. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2022 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. 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. Our diocese is blessed to have 3 Catholic schools: Rapid City Catholic School System, Sapa Un Academy in St. Francis, and Red Cloud Indian School in Pine Ridge.
