Catholic Schools Week
The last week in January, all eight of our schools in the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools system celebrated National Catholic Schools Week. This year’s message was “Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” Students celebrated throughout the week with special event days, including Crazy Hair Days, guest reader events and faculty vs. student competitions!
All eight of our schools, as well as St. Agnes school in Vermillion, gathered for the annual All Schools Mass on February 2, 2018 at the Elmen Center, Augustana University. Younger students sang “This Little Light of Mine” and our SFCS mission song. What made this year’s event so special is that it fell on Candlemas, or the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. Students representing all the parishes in our system carried candles in a processional and placed them in front of the altar. In his homily, Bishop Swain touched on the light Catholic education brings to our students.
