Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week 2022

January 30 – February 5, 2022

Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States, including in schools in the Diocese of Madison. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2022 is January 30 to February 5. The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2022 is "Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service."

At St. Maria Goretti, it is one of our favorite weeks of the year as we celebrate our school and Catholic education. The SMG school serves 300 students in preschool through eighth grade. We are encouraged to see so many of our families choosing Catholic education for their children.
