A MESSAGE FROM FATHER WEIGHNER

As we approach the end of January, we again prepare to celebrate Catholic Schools Week. Although it will be somewhat subdued this year, it is still a time to recall the many blessings we have in regard to our Catholic school. We will find new ways to showcase what the Catholic Church in general, and Columbus Catholic in particular, offers our families and those who choose this education for their children. A Catholic education is the primary mission of our church, and we strive to fulfill this mission in a variety of ways, including Columbus Catholic and our Family Faith Formation program. As the primary mission, the education of the future generations in the faith is supported financially by the local parishes in terms of a monthly subsidy, and this makes it a part of each family’s heritage, and something we can all be proud of. 

This year our bishop will not be traveling to the various schools in the diocese, but he will send a message on Catholic schools that will be offered to our students in their classrooms. Knowing the Mass is the center of our faith lives, rather than the entire school gathering as a single community for a Mass, each group will have a Mass that week. This is really what sets a Catholic school apart from others, for most schools can offer a high quality education in the sciences, math, language and the arts. However, we are able to offer another aspect of formation the public schools simply cannot offer; the ability to not only witness Christian values, but to have religious education as an integral part of our curriculum, including the opportunity to have our students at Mass, is invaluable in the formation of our children into tomorrow’s Christian leaders. 

If Catholic education is to continue to be a strong influence in our community, we as Catholics have to stand up for our beliefs, something we see as needed in our world as never before. Yes, it is a sacrifice to place your children in a Catholic school. However, it is a sacrifice that I believe is blessed over the years. When everything is considered, there is one thing that will ensure Catholic education will remain here in Marshfield, and that is enrollment. When deciding where you choose to send your young students in the coming weeks and months, please consider what your local parishes have to offer through arranging a tour of our facilities. Columbus Catholic is truly your school! 

God bless, Fr Jim   

 

 

A MESSAGE FROM ONE OF OUR STUDENTS

My name is Mark Fieweger and I am a student at Columbus Catholic High School. As we celebrate Catholic Schools Week, we would like to thank you for everything you have done to aid us in our mission.

Catholic Schools Week is a time that my fellow students and I all look forward to; we have a whole week of activities planned to show what we as students have accomplished and to celebrate the community we have built at Columbus. This is also a good time for us to express how grateful we are for all of your prayers and contributions that have given us the opportunity to attend Columbus and take part in this community. We appreciate the time and talent you so generously share through your volunteer efforts that have made Columbus into the place it is today.

The theme for Catholic Schools Week this year is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” This theme focuses on the key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence, and dedication to service. These elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options, these elements are the reasons that families make sacrifices to provide children with a Catholic education. Catholic schools give us a place where we are able to not only learn in a great environment, but also grow in our faith. This makes our Catholic schools a very special and unique place.

We consider all of our supporting parishes an important part of our community, and we hope that you will join us as we celebrate our Catholic education this week.

Gratefully,
Mark Fieweger
