Mayor Proclaims National Catholic Schools Week in Seguin
Annual Observance Runs January 25-31

SEGUIN, Texas – Mayor Don Keil has proclaimed January 25-31 as National Catholic Schools Week in Seguin. The proclamation was presented to St. James Catholic School on campus Monday.

“St. James Catholic School provides students an education that emphasizes moral values and commitment to community service,” Mayor Keil said. “It’s one of many schools across the country that provide quality education in the Catholic tradition.”

According to the National Catholic Education Association, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open house 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 church, our communities and our nation.
