[Pages H646-H647] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] NATIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK (Mr. LIPINSKI asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. LIPINSKI. Mr. Speaker, this is National Catholic Schools Week. Every year, I introduce a resolution to recognize the outstanding contributions that Catholic schools make to our Nation. My own education at Saint Symphorosa and Saint Ignatius provided the foundation that enabled me to earn 2 degrees in engineering, and a Ph.D. in political science before I began my career as a teacher. My experience, my wife's experience, and the experience of so many others across our Nation have made me a lifelong supporter of Catholic schools. This year's Catholic Schools Week theme is ``Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.'' And that is exactly what Catholic schools teach students to do. Earlier this week, I visited Saint Christina in Chicago and Saint Albert the Great in Burbank, and later this week I will be at Saints Cyril & Methodius in Lemont, as well as Saint Richard and Saint Daniel in Chicago. Mr. Speaker, I urge my colleagues to take time this week to recognize the great work of the Catholic schools in their districts. [[Page H647]] ____________________
