Catholic Schools Week was celebrated January 27 through February 1 with this year’s theme: “Catholic Schools: Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed.“ Many activities promoted pride in our Catholic school community beginning with Mass on Sunday at NDV Church where our Les Anges Children’s Choir sang and a celebratory reception followed in the Parish Hall.
