The Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Agana schools celebrate National Catholic Schools Week January 26 to February 1.

A proclamation signing was held Friday, Jan. 24th at the Governor’s Conference Room, Adelup. A Walk-fest Zumba exercise was slated for 6:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 at Plaza de España.

Schools will hold Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members throughout the week. Catholic educators and staff will gather during the annual Archdiocesan Catholic School Conference Friday January 31.

The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2014 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” It is the 40th anniversary of National Catholic Schools Week.

The 2014 theme was developed in response to member requests for a theme and logo that would last more than a year, the new theme will be used for at least three years. The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education.

First, schools are communities—small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged.

The new logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, Catholic Schools Week 2014 Logowhich is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
