Catholic Education Week 2021
Catholic Education Week 2021 will be celebrated from 23-29 May.
In recognition of 200 years of Catholic education in Australia, Catholic Education Week 2021 will align with school communities across Australia in celebrating this landmark event. The theme for the week is Faith in the Future which speaks of the essence of hope in faith, so needed against the backdrop of this year. A central focus of the week will be the celebration of the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians. Patron of Australia, on Monday 24 May. A national Mass will be celebrated on this day with the key intention being that students, staff, parents and the wider community join together on the one day across Australia to pray in thanksgiving for 200 years of Catholic education, and with great faith in the future of Catholic education. School leadership is asked to consider this in planning their liturgical celebrations for next year.
Liturgical and other resources to support schools will be forthcoming.
