VM Vocation Resources :: Vocation Days National Catholic Schools Week

National Catholic Schools Week

Last full week of January

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. 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.

Including vocation-related activities into this week each year strengthens the Catholic identity of a school.
