On Jan. 17, Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux signed a proclamation designating the week of Jan. 29 to Feb. 5 as Catholic Schools Week. The City of Gonzales took this moment as an opportunity to recognize St. John Primary/St. Theresa Middle’s important contributions to the area by providing a high quality education to students in our community for 58 years.

This year’s theme for Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” During the week, each church parish in the school partnership designates a Mass recognizing all Catholic school students.

Mass times are as follows:

St. Mark Catholic Church, Gonzales, Jan. 28 at 4 p.m.

St. Anne/St. Anthony Catholic Churches, Sorrento, Jan. 29 at 10:30 a.m.

St. Theresa of Avila, Gonzales, Jan. 29 at 11:30 a.m.

St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Prairieville, all Masses on the weekend of Feb. 4 and Feb.5
