Catholic Schools Week under way

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Catholic school students, their teachers and communities throughout Greater Cincinnati are observing Catholic Schools Week, a national celebration that runs through Saturday.

        In the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, more than 1,000 representatives from its 136 elementary and high schools will participate in a Mass at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains, 325 W. Eighth St., downtown.

        The Archdiocese of Cincinnati, which covers nine counties, has the ninth-largest Catholic school system in the United States, with 57,269 students registered for the 2000-01 school year.

        The Diocese of Covington, which includes more than 16,000 students at 41 schools across 14 counties in Northern Kentucky, is celebrating the week with a Mass at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, 1140 Madison Ave., Covington.

        Many of the Catholic schools in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky will mark the week with open houses for parents and grandparents, out-of-uniform days, service projects, Masses, special decorations and games.
