Catholic Education Week - Visit of Cardinal Brady PDF Print E-mail

Holy TrinityCatholic Education Week is an initiative of the Consultative Group for Catholic Education. It was inaugurated in 2007 and celebrated across N. Ireland. In 2008 the chosen theme is “Living Faith Fully”. The Week follows on from Education in Faith Sunday and concludes with Temperance Sunday on 3rd February in time for the penitential season of Lent.

The Week offers an opportunity to celebrate the distinctive richness of Catholic education and to emphasis its contribution to ensuring that each child develops and fulfils his potential. The celebrations provide a special focus on the unique ethos of Catholic schools whose mission is inspired by the Spirit of Christ. Catholic Education Week reminds all people of good will of the invaluable role that Catholic schools have in assisting the spiritual and moral well-being of our young people.
