SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools celebrated Catholic Schools Week this morning in a way they've never been able to before.
1,700 students from each of the Heelan schools filled the new gym at the high school to celebrate mass together.
This is the first time they have been able to fit all of the students, along with teachers, parents, and grandparents in the same place for mass.
The new, bigger gym makes it possible.
Bishop R. Walker Nickless led mass for the crowd, with help from priests from the surrounding parishes.
Following mass, the students were treated to a special luncheon with the priests.
