Education Sunday 11th September 2016 'All are welcome'
Education Sunday is a day of celebration for all those involved in the world of education. For over a century it has been part of an ecumenical celebration in which the Catholic Church participates, and this year for the first time it falls at the start of the academic year. Reflecting on this week’s readings, the 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, teachers, support staff and volunteers who work so hard in and for Catholic schools. It is also a chance for us all to remember that our churches and schools must have open doors to all, and that we must go out of those doors to meet all with Christ’s love.
