He began the day by celebrating Mass with students, parents, friends and alumni then spent the afternoon visiting the classrooms. Catholic Schools Week is celebrated annually across the country. This year it took place Jan. 31 through Feb. 6. Schools observe the week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, it allows each school to focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to the Church, communities and nation. The Diocese of Marquette has nine Catholic schools. Each school participated in Catholic Schools week in a variety of ways. These pages show just a brief sam- pling of how some of the schools took part in the week.
