Education

‘Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.’ St. Catherine of Siena

‘Catholic education is an integral and essential part of the Church’s mission; to make the person of Jesus Christ known and loved, and to place Him and the teaching of the Catholic Church at the centre of people’s lives. Catholic schools support Catholic parents in their responsibility for the academic, physical, spiritual, moral and religious education of their children, in accordance with the teachings of the Church.’
Marie Ryan, Director of the Education Service.
