On Wednesday, January 30, 2008 students from St. Aloysius and student representatives from Benoit Academy, St. John, St. Therese and St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth Catholic Schools were present as Mayor Henry proclaimed January 27 – February 2, 2008 as Catholic Schools Week in the City of Fort Wayne and the Diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend.

This year’s national celebration of Catholic Schools Week, “Catholic Schools Light the Way” was a very exciting one. This was the 34th annual Catholic Schools Week jointly sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. It is an annual national celebration of the important role that Catholic elementary and secondary schools across the country play in providing a values-added education for America’s young people. Catholic schools are proud of their educational network that emphasizes intellectual, spiritual, moral, physical, and social values in their students. Catholic Schools Week is a key part of the year-long National Marketing Campaign for Catholic Schools.

After the proclamation Mayor Henry fielded questions from the students.
