Happy Catholic Schools Week
Many years ago, when my oldest child was entering the first grade, I wondered if he would need to attend CCD classes in order to receive the sacraments. I went to the parish DRE with this question. She responded, "Why would you put your children in CCD? Your children already go to Catholic school."
It took the DRE to point out that my homeschooled children attended a real, true Catholic school. St. Thomas Aquinas, patron of Catholic schools, is also our patron.
Today is the first day of Catholic Schools Week. It's homeschoolers week too. So claim it and celebrate your Catholic school.
