Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from Sunday 23 - Saturday 29 July this year.
This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day.
The theme for this year’s celebrations is Sharing the Journey.
Catholic Education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.
During Catholic Education Week 2017, Catholic education communities across Queensland will celebrate and share how they are Sharing the journey.
Pope Francis has said:
Today, we need a Church capable of walking at people’s side, of doing more than simply listening to them; a Church which accompanies them on their journey.
The whole journey of life is a journey of preparation…to see, to feel, to understand the beauty of what lies ahead, of the homeland towards which we walk.
What is important is the whole journey by which we arrive at the mission the Lord entrusts to us.
Stay tuned for Catholic Education week activities at St. Columba's!
