Introduction

‘Catholic Schools – Rooted in Jesus Christ’

During Catholic Schools Week we are offered the opportunity to celebrate the contribution that Catholic Education makes to the wider community and the people who make up the living and vibrant faith communities which characterise our schools. The theme Catholic Schools – Rooted in Jesus Christ is inspired by the Pastoral Letter of Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI to the Catholics of Ireland, which was published on 20 March 2010. In section 9 Pope Benedict directly addresses the children and young people of Ireland.
