During the COVID-19 pandemic, schools are now used to working in class bubbles for safety. Any large gatherings are not safe and most schools are currently offering on-line learning. Our normal Diocesan Gatherings at the end of January are not feasible and for this reason we offer some resources and a prayer service that could be offered online so that this important point in the Catholic Schools Year can still be marked.
We have prepared a service using symbols for the KEY DAILY THEMES. Students might decorate these in colours and laminate them to suspend from a small tree at home or as a mobile using coat hangers.
For CSW 2021 Archbishop Eamon has recorded a message directly speaking to students. He situates this into their lives coping with learning at home, family life in the pandemic and new school realities and learning situations. He thanks students and gives them his blessing for this year. This is available to view by clicking on the link above.
