Catholic Education Week 2014
Date: Sunday 23rd February to Saturday 1st March 2014
Theme: “Shining the Light of Faith”
“Faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey.” (57)
From 23rd February to 1st March 2014 Scotland’s Catholic schools and parishes will celebrate how they support children and young people to ensure that they are “Shining the Light of Faith” in their daily lives. This theme has been inspired by the first Encyclical of Pope Francis: ‘Lumen Fidei’ (The Light of Faith).
