Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education: A Joy ever new, a joy which is shared

World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly was on Sunday 23rd July and this also marked the start of Catholic Education Week. To celebrate those who have gone before us and who continue to guide us with their wisdom and knowledge, we held a
special liturgy on Friday 28th July commencing at 9am in Nolan Hall.

Centred around our value of Joy and in the spirit of Catholic Education, we will celebrate all the goodness of both attending a Catholic School and being guided by our elders, past and present. Joy is often associated with hope and our innermost desire
and longing for true happiness that God has placed in each of our hearts. In his encyclical, Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis writes that “the joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus”. At times, we can encounter Jesus in and through each other. You can most certainly see this joy in how grandparents often spoil their grandchildren. And so, for our Catholic Education Week liturgy, our theme was joy. Joy ever new, joy which is shared.
