An Invitation for Catholic Schools Week

STAMFORD—Every year, the Church takes a week to celebrate what makes Catholic education unique and Christ-centered. This “Catholic Schools Week” always takes place during the last week of January, to include the feast days of two great saints who contributed much to Catholic education: St. John Bosco, and St. Thomas Aquinas.

Trinity Catholic High School is celebrating Catholic Schools Week with a number of great events. Father Joseph Gill, chaplain of Trinity Catholic, reached out to pastors in the community to invite them and their parishioners to an All-Community Mass.

The Mass will be held on Monday, January 28 at 9:30 am in the TCHS School Gym. Everyone is invited—priests, parishioners, friends, members of the community. As part of the celebration, Trinity Catholic will have students and alumni speak about their experience of attending a Catholic school and how it has helped their faith.

Father Gill extended the invitation to pastors of all area churches to concelebrate Mass with him. What a wonderful way to recognize those kids from parishes who attend Trinity, by joining together in worship for Catholic Schools Week! The Mass is open to all.

Father Gill asks that if pastors are planning to concelebrate, that they please RSVP by January 25.
