Catholic Schools Week

This week has been designated Catholic Schools week. The purpose of the week is to highlight and celebrate the wonderful contribution that our Catholic Schools make to our local community and society in general. This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: called to serve”. The theme was chosen to highlight that our schools teach us to serve with Love, kindness, joy, truth and justice. Many events are planned in our schools to celebrate Catholic Schools Week. Children from St Fiacc’s and students from Knockbeg will attend the 10am Mass during the week in St Clare’s. Also next weekend our school children from Primary and Secondary schools will participate at our Masses.
