From January 28 — February 3, 2018 the 19 schools in the Diocese of Fort Worth will celebrate the faith-driven focus, high academic standards, and priority on service that define Catholic education.
During Catholic Schools Week — a joint project of the U.S. bishops and the National Catholic Education Assocation — the schools will host several events like Masses, service projects, book fairs, intergenerational activities, and career days, but also open houses for families, parishioners, and other community members.
“The open houses at our diocesan schools are a great opportunity for parents to see all that our schools have to offer their families: an education experience that encompasses the whole child and the whole family,” said Erin Vader, coordinator of Schools Advancement and Alumni Relations.
To learn more about Catholic schools in our diocese, their open house dates, financial aid, and registration deadlines, please visit fwdioc.org/catholic-schools. As we lead up to Catholic Schools Week, we will publish mini-features on all of our schools, beginning with these in Fort Worth:

For over a hundred years, Our Lady of Victory Catholic School has provided a faith-filled, close-knit community for the students of South Fort Worth. Founded by the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur in 1910, OLV has evolved with the city from an all-girls boarding school to a co-ed community that provides one-on-one attention for its students. OLV views itself as a partner with parents in the formation of their children: in faith, in academic education, and in their growth as citizens. In support of the family, OLV plans special gatherings throughout the year, catering to the whole family, allowing the community to grow in support of one another. OLV is a family of families.

Every year, St. Andrew Catholic School chooses a theme for faith formation; the theme this year is ‘unity.’ One of our favorite Church hymns includes the refrain: “We are One Body. One Body in Christ. And We Do Not Stand alone.” These lyrics, based on chapter 12 of Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, are so comforting — especially in a school. In the classroom, it is reassuring for students to know they are not alone. They are united in the Body of Christ with their classmates, their teachers, the staff and the administration. Parents are also a vital part of the Saint Andrew Catholic School family which is manifested in their support and partnership.
