Diocesan schools celebrate National Catholic Schools Week

Fifth though eighth grade students at Holy Infancy School, Bethlehem make rosary bracelets as a ministry for their pastor, Father Andy Gehringer, to take to home-bound parishioners and for the parish to distribute to service members from the parish.

The 40 schools and nearly 1,000 faculty and staff of the Diocese of Allentown celebrated Catholic Schools Week Jan. 26-Feb. 1 with open houses, Masses, recognition events and lots of fun activities.
