View: Diocese of Lansing Schools | A Day in the Life

It's Catholic Schools Week (January 28 - February 3) and, so, we hope you love these photographs. We do! The Diocese of Lansing recently asked photographer, Valerie Hendrickson, to travel the length and breadth of the diocese in an attempt to capture a day in the life of our Catholic schools. The results are beautiful. Take a look for yourself.

“Valerie’s photographs perfectly capture the joy, wonder, and piety that you encounter whenever you visit any Catholic school within the Diocese of Lansing – they are stunning. Praise God!” says Tom Maloney, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Lansing, February 2.

During her tour of the diocese, Valerie visited Saint Francis of Assisi School in Ann Arbor; Saint Patrick School in Brighton; Holy Rosary School in Flint; Saint Mary, Star of the Sea, in Jackson; and Church of the Resurrection School in Lansing.

“It was so encouraging to see that Catholic education is alive and thriving here in our diocese – I was delighted to see students embracing the integration of faith into their daily routine and the spirit of joy in these schools,” says Valerie, who is based in Jackson.

In total, there are 36 Catholic schools across the Diocese of Lansing. Each school attempts to assist parents in raising happy and holy children who grow daily in knowledge, wisdom and virtue in order to become good scholars and great saints in this life and in the next.

Meanwhile, student enrollment across Diocese of Lansing schools has grown for the past three years. In total, student numbers have increased by 10% since 2020. Deo gratias.
