Education Sunday will take place on 10 Sunday September 2017.
Education Sunday is a day of celebration for all those involved in education. For over a century it has been part of an ecumenical celebration in which the Catholic Church participates. The Catholic Education Service’s theme for Education Sunday 2017 is 'Gathered in My Name'. Resources will be available in the near future.
Education Sunday is an opportunity for schools and parishes to come together to celebrate and give thanks for all the students, staff and parents who work so hard in and for Catholic schools. It is also a chance for us to reflect upon the contribution that Catholic education makes to our communities.
