On January 11, 2022, students from St. John Primary and St. Theresa Middle took a field trip to the Gonzales City Hall to meet with Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux.  The students had a wonderful time inquiring about the Mayor’s responsibilities.  When asked what his favorite part of the job was, Mayor Arceneaux replied, “Meeting people and helping them with their problems”.   He emphasized to them that they were a part of a wonderful institution that has provided an excellent Catholic education in this area for over 60 years.  After a brief tour of his office, Mayor Arceneaux signed the proclamation designating the week of January 30 to February 5, 2022 as Catholic Schools Week.

This year’s theme for Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools:  Faith. Excellence. Service.” During this week, students participate in a variety of activities to celebrate their faith, praise their academic excellence and share their commitment of service to others. Students will also be invited to participate in a weekend mass in their home church parish designated to recognizing all Catholic school students.
