EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - We’re nearing the start of the school year.

The Diocese held their annual back to school mass Tuesday morning.

Officials say the service was used to celebrate the start of a new school year, and more than 200 people gathered inside Reitz Memorial High School for the service.

Evansville has 26 catholic schools in eight different counties, including both Vanderburgh and Warrick counties.

The mass ended with Catholic Educator Innovative Awards, which honors catholic educators.

Bishop Joseph Siegel will officially open the new school year.

Some of those students head back to class on Wednesday.
