Education Sunday will take place on Sunday 11th September 2016.
Education Sunday is a day of celebration for all those involved in education. For over a century it has been part of an ecumenical celebration in which the Catholic Church participates. The Catholic Education Service’s theme for Education Sunday 2016 is 'All are welcome'.
Education Sunday is an opportunity for schools and parishes to come together to celebrate and give thanks for all the students, staff and parents who work so hard in and for Catholic schools. It is also a chance for us to reflect upon the contribution that Catholic education makes to our communities.
Resources for Education Sunday 2016 include:
- A letter of support for Education Sunday from Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP
- Mass booklet (11th September)
- Information and Reflection resources booklet
- Catholic Education Information Leaflet
- Twitter guide, with sample tweets and hashtags
- Guidance on running Education Sunday Mass in parishes
- Sample invitation for school staff and volunteers to Education Sunday Mass
