Catholic Schools Week 2018 (28th Jan – 4th Feb) will run in the same format as previous years but there is one important distinction. This year, the theme for Catholic Schools Week 2018 is Catholic Schools: Families of Faith. and it will be the high point of the primary and post-primary school catechetical programme. 

For the past few years, Secondary Schools in the diocese have hosted events in their parishes,, on the theme designated to that year.  Loreto College, Cavan has kindly offered to host this year’s event, to which all Secondary Schools from the diocese are invited to attend. The celebration, on Tuesday 30th of January, will begin with Mass in the Cathedral of St Patrick and St Felim, Cavan, at 12.00 noon .

 In partnership with World Meeting of Families 2018, the Catholic Schools Week Steering Committee has developed a one-year catechetical programme for Catholic primary and post-primary schools. The theme for this programme is Catholic Schools: Called to be a Family of Families. The programme invites Catholic schools to reflect on and to celebrate the relationship that exists between home, school and parish through participation in four sub themed catechetical moments.
