Seachtain na Scoileanna Caitliceacha

In Catholic Schools Week 2011 we reflect on what it is to be rooted in Jesus Christ. Jesus was a teacher. His followers call him teacher forty-five times in the Gospels. They perceive him as someone who could teach them, from whom they could learn. The questions and requests they made of him echo in our schools today.

“Teacher, give us a sign;

Teacher, teach us to pray;

Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment?”

Pope Benedict XVI asks children and

young people to root their lives in Christ. ‘Seek a personal relationship with him within the

communion of his Church, for he will never betray your trust! He alone can satisfy your deepest

longings and give your lives their fullest meaning by directing them to the service of others. Keep

your eyes fixed on Jesus and his goodness, and shelter the flame of faith in your hearts.’

An old Irish proverb says that ‘a wet and windy May fills the barn with corn and hay’. Seeds are

sown in Spring. As stem and stalk burst through the earth they are exposed to the weather.

Rain and wind in May can batter and beat this young growth but the hidden roots beneath the

surface grow stronger precisely because life is not easy above ground. The pulling and jarring

determines whether this young life can survive in the real world. If we remain rooted in Christ

then despite the vagaries of the weather and the difficult conditions in which we live, we can

look forward to a rich harvest.

The Catholic School …

  • Has at its heart the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ
  • Builds an environment of care and concern for others that is rooted in Catholic social teaching
  • Creates a safe and happy learning environment where every child is encouraged and enabled to develop to their full and unique potential as human beings, made in the image and likeness of God
  • Seeks educational excellence while remaining faithful to their distinctive vision and approach
  • Is an inclusive and respectful community, welcoming children of all denominations and of none
  • Acknowledges the role of parents as the first teachers in the ways of faith and provides opportunities for their participation in the life of the school
  • Works in partnership with parents and the parish community to keep the light of faith burning brightly
  • Provides religious education programmes that confirm and deepen the child’s understanding of the Catholic faith so that every child will be as articulate in their faith as in all other areas of the curriculum
  • Nurtures the child’s appreciation and understanding of the sacramental life of the Church
  • Displays the symbols of our rich Catholic faith tradition
  • Spends time as a school community in reflection, prayer, ritual, celebrating the Eucharist and other sacraments to develop the spiritual life of each person in the school community.

Naomh Bríd – Feabhra 1ú

Déantar uisce coisricthe a chroitheadh ar chrosa Bhríde agus deirtear an phaidir seo.

‘Go raibh beannacht an Athar, an Mhic is an Spiorad Naoimh ar na crosa seo, ar na háiteanna ina bhfuil siad agus ar gach duine a fhéachann orthu.’

Dáiltear iad ansin agus deirtear an phaidir seo:

‘Go dtuga lasair Bhríde spreagadh duit.

Go dtuga crios Bhríde slánú duit.

Go dtuga cruthaíocht Bhríde slí duit.’


Lord, you inspired in St. Brigid such

wholehearted dedication to your work that

she is known as Mary of the Gael; through her intercession bless our country: may we follow the example of her life and be united with her and the Virgin Mary in your presence.

St. Blaise – Feabhra 3ú

Blessing of Throats will take place at the 10am and 7.30pm Masses on Thursday

Through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness:

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


St. Blaise, pray for us that we may not suffer from illnesses of the throat and pray that all who are suffering be healed by God’s love. Amen.


Pilgrimage to Northumbria

An Díseart

Sunday 17 – Sunday 24 July 2011

Flying out from Cork airport the Pilgrimage tour will follow the footsteps of Aidan and the Irish monks from Iona who in 635 AD initiated a mission to the Kingdom of Northumbria., in the North East of England, and in the short space of 30 years established the Church as a centre for missionary outreach to the rest of England and indeed to the Continent of Europe.

The Pilgrimage will take us from Lindisfarne to Whitby; from the wonderful Romanesque Cathedral of Durham to the spectacular Gothic York Minster; from Aidan’s Parish Church and Oswald’s Castle Bamburgh to Cuthbert’s Church on the Farne Islands; from Bede’s Monastery to the “World of St Bede” in Jarrow.  Visiting these historic and holy places within the rich agricultural land and beautiful

scenery of Northumbria should prove a breathtaking and inspirational event.

Group limited to 25, Cost €700. More details next week, contact An Díseart 9152476 for booking.
