Communities celebrate success during Catholic Schools Week

Each year, National Catholic Schools Week celebrates the diverse contribution of the 6,300 Catholic schools across the United States.

Schools in the Diocese of Charleston, in particular, have much of which to be proud.

Bucking national trends, instead of closing or consolidating parish schools, the diocese honors the uniqueness of each one and finds innovative ways to help them thrive.

School officials said Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone, a vocal champion of education, has actively encouraged the expansion and construction of Catholic schools in areas that can support it.

In the past 10 years, four new schools have been established and another expanded to include high school students. And that doesn’t include the many schools that built new facilities, new sports complexes, or upgraded in some way.

The diocese now has 34 schools, with high schools in six of its seven deaneries.

So here’s to the continued success of Catholic education, which was celebrated Jan. 28 to Feb. 3 with tributes to academics, faith and community.
