With a theme of "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service," the 60 elementary schools of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston celebrated National Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 26 to Feb. 1.
Joann Prater knows all about the value of a Catholic school education. As principal of St. Christopher Catholic School, she not only educates students in mind, heart and spirit, but regularly hears about the great dividends yielded by her faculty’s efforts from past graduates — many of whom face considerable challenges early in life.
Since the early Christian communities were challenged by St. Paul to bear the image of Jesus Christ to the world through generous support of time, talent and treasure to the Church, each person is still called today to imitate Jesus who “though he was rich, became poor and emptied himself for our sakes.”
