Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux signed a proclamation Jan. 15 designating Jan. 31 to Feb. 6 as Catholic Schools Week in the city.
Arceneaux and city officials “took this moment as an opportunity to recognize St. John Primary and St. Theresa Middle’s important contributions to the area by providing a quality education to students in our community for 57 years,” a news release said.
