Catholic Schools Week
Catholic Schools Week will run from 28 January to 4 February and this year’s theme is
‘Called To Be A Family of Families’
Dublin has been chosen by Pope Francis to host the World Meeting of Families 2018. From 21–26 August 2018, families and others from all over the world will gather to celebrate their lives together, to share their experiences from different parts of the world, to reflect on the different challenges they face and to grow together in faith. This event presents a special opportunity for school families to celebrate not only the fact that parents are the primary educators of their children but also the vital role that Catholic schools play in assisting parents.
Each of our parish schools will celebrate Catholic Schools Week in their own way. Mercy PS & St Brendan’s PS will lead our celebrations of 10am Mass on Monday 29 January and Thursday 1 February respectively and our other schools will also be marking the week.
