This week, 24th to 31st January is Catholic Schools Week. The theme chosen for this year is Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith and Resilience. It is an appropriate theme given the difficulties that schools have encountered during this academic year. Our schools are places of structure, comfort, care, belonging and strength for our young people. Let us pray for resilience among our pupils and teachers at this time of school closures and hope that our schools will soon be reopened again.
