Catholic Schools Week 2020
Catholic Schools Week 2020 presents us with an ideal opportunity to recognise and support the service being offered by all members of our boards and to highlight the voluntary nature of this important work in our Catholic schools. The boards of all our 163 Catholic Schools have been renewed for a four year term and parishes are being asked to include a Commissioning and Blessing of the Boards of Managements 2019-2023 in their celebration of Catholic Schools Week 2020. A candle to be lit at BoM meetings will be presented to each chairperson. These candles will be provided by the diocese and will be distributed during the Assembly of Priests and Deacons in Athlone. It suggested that this blessing take place during weekend Masses on February 1 and 2 as January 26 has also been designated Sunday of the Word of God and other events may be taking place on that Sunday. A short resource for this blessing is available for download here available for download here.
Resources for previous years can all be accessed via https://www.catholicschools.ie/resources-for-use-in-catholic-schools/
