CSW posterCatholic Schools Week 2023: ‘Walking Together in Faith & Love’
Sunday 22 January – Sunday 29 January 2023

For this year’s annual celebration of Catholic education, CSW draws on three features of the Synodal Pathway: ‘Communion, Participation and Mission’. The theme for CSW 2023 is dedicated to celebrating the gift of Catholic education and recognizing the love and generosity of the entire school community: student, staff and home.

According to Mr Alan Hynes, Chief Executive of the Catholic Education Partnership, “Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of contribution of Catholic education to individuals, to society, and to the global common good. Over the week, students will reflect on their own relationship with God, with their school community, and with their families. Inspired by the teachings of Pope Francis, our schools are encouraged to help bring joyful hope to our collective future through a relationship with Jesus.”

CSW resources have been made available at Catholic Education Partnership | Ireland, drawing on scriptural reflections on journey, prayer, student voice, and (spiritual) wellbeing, with the following daily themes:

Monday: Walking Together in Faith
Tuesday: Walking Together in Love (in our school community, themes of inclusion)
Wednesday: Walking Together to Celebrate – Grandparents’ Day (celebrating those who help us on the journey of faith, themes of inclusion of the elderly in society, Pope Francis’ Message for the World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly 2022)
Thursday: Walking Together to Transform our World (themes of environment – Laudato Si’ – and Mission)
Friday: Walking Together in Hope
