“Although you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy.” 1 Peter 1:8

St. Francis of Assisi School is proud to celebrate Catholic Education Week from Monday, May 6, 2019 to Friday, May 10, 2019.  Throughout this week, we will engage in school and classroom activities that celebrate that a true encounter with Jesus can and does take place, each and every day within our school.  All partners in Catholic education – home, school, and parish – share responsibility to continue to nurture and strengthen Catholic schools as communities that exemplify, in word and in deed, the Good News of Jesus Christ.
