Catholic Schools Week

CRBHS celebrated Catholic Schools Week from February 1 to February 5 with several events that celebrated the unique aspects of Catholic Education.  In a morning assembly, students learned about the history of Catholic education in the United States and heard from students and teachers about what Catholic Schools mean to them.  Senior, Chelsea Kelly, contributed a reflection to the National Catholic Educational Association, writing "Being in Catholic school has helped me understand the values of what God can do in my life. I really saw how God works through the people that follow him.  Having the support that I had showed me ways to lean on God, and I am thankful for that."  Read the full reflection here.  We concluded the week with a mass co-celebrated by Bishop Sansaricq, Fr. Sean, and school chaplain, Fr. Dwayne.
