National Catholic School week begins January 25. I would like to praise Catholic schools for their ongoing contribution to education and for their key role in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for the nation.
These schools produce students dedicated to their faith, families and communities by providing an intellectually stimulating environment rich in spirituality, character and moral development .
I hope God helps us to continue to keep our Catholic schools vibrant and thriving, for these children are our nation's future.
