CRC Celebrates Catholic Schools Week!

catholic schools logo smallStudents in Catholic Schools around the country will spend the week of January 28 to February 2 doing special activities, dressing up in fun costumes, holding events, and celebrating each other as a way to honor Catholic Schools.

Cathedral of the Risen Christ School joins the fun, mixing old traditions with new ideas - including over 150 entries into an "Idea Box" that was placed by the front office.
