  (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 
  This year's Catholic Schools Week theme is ``Learn. Serve. Lead. 
Succeed.'' And that is exactly what Catholic schools teach students to 
  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.
