The end of January is usually a special week in Catholic schools across the nation, and 2018 isn’t any different. The annual Catholic Schools Week is being held January 28 - February 3. The theme for this year’s Catholic Schools Week is Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.
CJ is celebrating throughout the week with events and activities:
- On Monday, CJ joined other local Catholic high schools by uniting in the same prayer at each perspective school. Students came out into the hallway and united hands during the prayer.
- During the all-school Mass on Wednesday, January 31 at Emmanuel Catholic Church, the CJ community will be joined by Deacon Royce Winters, Director of the Office for African American Ministries in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
- Each day during the school week, the morning music will be from Christian artists and each afternoon, a student or staff member will reflect on why they chose to attend or work at CJ.
- The celebratory week concludes with the CJ community encouraged to wear a Catholic school shirt on Friday, and the school’s talent show will take place.
In addition to the celebrations, a few students had the opportunity to speak with Archbishop Schnurr during a live teleconference with other Cincinnati and Dayton area Catholic high schools on Monday. You can see his response to one of the questions from CJ here.
