Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School celebrated Catholic Schools Week, the last week of January. The 2016 theme was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” K4-12 students participated in special events throughout the week celebrating Faith, Knowledge and Service in our Community, Nation, Vocations, and Faculty & Students.
The celebration began on Sunday when each of the Montgomery Catholic campuses held an Open House for new families interested in Catholic education for their children. Grandparents were invited to our St. Bede elementary campus for Grandparents Day on Monday, where the students performed songs from The Sound of Music and the Holy Spirit elementary campus held a book fair all week. The Montgomery Catholic Parent Teacher Council treated students, faculty and staff to several special events and treats throughout the week, including snacks at break and a special faculty lunch on Friday. The High School attended the National School Choice rally at the State Capitol. The Montgomery Catholic Middle School campus wrote thank you letters to their parents for their Catholic education. The Elementary campuses had classroom visits and blessings from Parish priests Father Pat Arensberg and Father Alex Valladares from St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church and Father Patrick Driscoll from Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Montgomery Catholic alumna Sister Dominica and Father Greenwell visited with the students at all campuses to talk about vocations. All campuses also saluted our military and first responders by inviting them to join around the flag pole and praying for them.
A week to celebrate all that Catholic Education is. Montgomery Catholic is blessed by its wonderful community of “Faith, Knowledge and Service.”
Founded in 1873, Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School is an integral part of the Catholic Church’s mission to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. As an adult community, we share in the responsibility to prepare students for college and beyond while helping them grow to become persons of faith, virtue and wisdom.
