BISHOP JAMES MASSA JOINS ST. MARK’S CATHOLIC ACADEMY IN CELEBRATING CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
The Diocese of Brooklyn is highlighting an event marking Catholic Schools Week held at St. Mark’s Catholic Academy which began with a Mass celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop James Massa, the Diocesan Vicar for Education.
The Mass was followed by the “Great Read,” a 15-year tradition at St. Mark’s, which featured a number of guest readers, including Bishop Massa who read Everyday Angels by Mark Kimball Moulton.
Catholic Schools Week, started in 1974, is a national celebration dedicated to highlighting the success of Catholic education throughout the United States. This year, the theme of Catholic Schools Week is: “Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”
St. Mark’s Catholic Academy is located in the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn.
