Catholic Schools Week 2018 – Jan 29th-Feb 2nd

This week we are  celebrating Catholic Schools Week at St Joseph’s CBS.  We are a Catholic School and are inspired by our founder Blessed Edmund Rice. The theme for the week is Families in Faith.

On Monday, third class focused on the theme Our Family at Home. We prayed for all members of our families.

Today, fourth class prayed and reflected on Our School Family. We remember in prayer students, teachers and visitors to our school.

Tomorrow,  fifth class will focus and pray about Our Parish Family. We learn more about Jesus when we go to mass and we will pray for our school chaplin, Fr. Barry.

On Friday, sixth class will conclude our catholic schools week by remembering we belong to and are responsible for the world around us. Let us be beacons of joy to our families, school, parish and the world.

We are reminded of the invitation to us all from Pope Francis – in August 2018, the ninth World Meeting of Families will be celebrated in Dublin and throughout Ireland. The World Meeting of Families, which is held every three years, celebrates family life and the Church’s commitment to supporting families. The theme chosen by Pope Francis for World Meeting of Families is The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World.

We look forward to welcoming Pope Francis to Ireland.
