Catholic Schools Week 2016

Catholic Schools Week 2016 will take place from Sunday, January 31 to Saturday February 6.

The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2016 is Catholic Schools: Challenged to Proclaim God’s mercy“.

Catholic Schools Week is an all-Ireland annual event which invites Catholic schools to give expression in a special way to the ethos of Catholic education.

It is a celebration of Catholic schools throughout Ireland, North and South which acknowledges the tremendous contribution that our Catholic primary and post-primary schools make not just to Irish society, but to the mission of the Church.

Catholic Schools Week 2016 will take place from Sunday 31 January to Saturday 6 February 2016 on the theme “Catholic Schools: Challenged to Proclaim God’s Mercy”.

It is hoped that this theme will help contextualise the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis from 8 December 2015 to 20 November 2016.

This year, for the first time, resources will not be mailed to schools, but are available for download here.
