Catholic Education Week 2021
Catholic Education Week 2021 was celebrated from 23-29 May.
In recognition of 200 years of Catholic education in Australia, Catholic Education Week 2021 was aligned with school communities across Australia to celebrate this landmark event. The theme for the week was Faith in the Future which spoke of the essence of hope in faith, so needed against the backdrop of this past year.
A central focus of the week was the celebration of the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, Patron of Australia, on Monday 24 May. A national Mass was celebrated on this day with the key intention being that students, staff, parents and the wider community join together on the one day across Australia to pray in thanksgiving for 200 years of Catholic education, and with great faith in the future of Catholic education.
