How Can I Help?
Across America, commemorative days, weeks, and months are common and occur by the dozens, touching nearly every area of interest, ranging from ethnic commemorations (black history and Hispanic history) to medical issues (diabetes awareness and breast cancer awareness) to education (teacher appreciation and Catholic Schools week) to hobbies (amateur radio and fishing) to sexual behaviors (LGBT) and so forth. Each is designed to bring awareness to particular aspects of our culture or heritage.
Christian Heritage Week is an opportunity to help raise awareness and educate our communities to the importance of America’s Christian heritage. Hundreds of official proclamations declaring Christian Heritage Week have been issued by governors, state legislatures, mayors, and local political bodies and officials.
