A week of celebration for catholic schools nationwide is underway.
Yesterday kicked off Catholic Schools Week across the country.
Each year, participating schools engage in a variety of activities from masses to charitable events such as food drives.
The four Catholic Schools of Broome County began the week yesterday with musical performances at the Oakdale Mall.
Events continued today with Bishop Robert Cunningham conducting a service for all the schools at Seton Catholic Central High School.
Superintendent William Crist says this is a week to recognize the positive things. “We don’t take enough time to celebrate good things when they happen. We’re always caught up like everyone with responsibilities that life brings us. So to pause and take a few moments in the course of a week in the school year to say this what we are, this who we are and this is why we do what we do. It really creates a wonderful opportunity.”
Catholic Schools week will continue tomorrow as students from All Saints and St.John’s Elementary Schools will travel to Willow Point and Brookdale nursing homes to perform for the residents.
