January 27, 2019 – A View from the Rectory Window


National Catholic Schools’ Week is fast approaching.  It runs from January 27 through February 1.  The theme for 2019 . . . .“Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” 

This theme is vibrantly reflected, on a daily basis, at Bishop McHugh Regional Catholic School whose focus is on faith development, academic excellence and dedication to community service.  Within this atmosphere of Catholic values, our students are challenged by their academic curriculum, supported by a caring faculty and invited to engage in service to one another and to others. 

All are invited to visit our parish school this week.  Our school will be holding Open House hours each day during Catholic Schools Week between 9-11 am.  It is so  encouraging to see how we as a parish family are investing in the future of our young women and men.  There is no mission in our parish as devoted to our children and their future.

Our parish family will open our celebration of Catholic School’s Week within the 9:30am Mass at the Church of the Resurrection on January 27.  Information regarding Bishop McHugh Regional Catholic School will be available following the Mass.  At this time, school representatives will be available in the church gathering area to answer any questions.  They will also be hosting Hospitality Sunday in the Pavilion.

As we celebrate anew this Catholic Schools’ Week, I agree wholeheartedly and present for your consideration the remark made by the Most Reverend Roger J. Foys, Bishop of Covington, “While there may be alternatives to Catholic Education . . . there are no  substitutes.”
