In honor of Catholic Schools Week, U.S. Congressman Dan Lipinski (D- Ill.) introduced a House resolution commending Catholic schools for their work and contributions to society.

“As a proud graduate of Catholic grammar school and high school, every year I look forward to highlighting the achievements of America’s Catholic schools during Catholic Schools Week,” said Rep. Lipinski in a Jan. 23 statement.

His resolution commended Catholic schools for promoting a “broad, values-added education emphasizing the lifelong development of moral, intellectual, physical, and social values in young people in the United States.”

The resolution also extends support to “the goals of National Catholic Schools Week” and welcomes the “key role” that Catholic schools “play in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for the Nation.”

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Catholic Schools Week, instituted by the National Catholic Educational Association and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The theme for this year – which runs Jan. 26 to Feb. 1 – is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”

Each year during Catholic Schools Week, Lipinski visits some of the Catholic schools in his district.
