Catholic Students Will Fill the CatholicTV Studios During Catholic Schools Week

During the week of January 31-February 6, CatholicTV will host students from six different Catholic schools in honor of Catholic Schools Week.

During Catholic Schools Week, Catholic school and homeschooled students of many different ages will attend the live daily Mass at the CatholicTV studios and will serve as lectors and altar servers. In past years, students have made brief appearances on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day” during Catholic Schools Week.

On January 26th, Sr. Janet Eisner, SND, President of Emmanuel College, (a Catholic college in Boston) will be interviewed live on “This is the Day” at 10:30AM ET. Sister Janet will be joined by students from the school. On that same day, Father Stephen Boyle, Emmanuel’s Chaplain will preside at the televised daily Mass.

Catholic Schools Week is a joint project of the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

“Catholic Schools - Dividends for Life” is the theme selected for Catholic Schools Week 2010. According to Karen Ristau, NCEA president, “In these challenging times, the theme also reminds parents that the dividends of a Catholic school education—students prepared in faith, knowledge, morals and discipline—last a lifetime. There is no better way to invest in a child’s future—or the future of our world.”

CatholicTV produces and airs a catechetical game show called Wow: The CatholicTV Challenge (WOW). WOW is a children’s game show which energetically teaches viewers the Catholic faith. The show resembles the show Jeopardy!, yet has young contestants just like the show “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” More information is available at http://www.CatholicTV.com/shows/default.aspx?seriesID=137
