The Catholic school furthers the experience of Christian family and community. It is a partner to home and parish in the journey of each child. It contributes ti the growth of the child, the family and the wider faith community through its commitment, expertise and resources.
The primary religious education programme Grow in Love (Veritas) supports the implementation of the Catholic Preschool and Primary Religious Education Curriculum for Ireland. The thrust of Grow in Love is towards catechesis on the sacraments. It encourages conversations between home, parish communities and schools about the model of sacramental preparation and celebration in parishes so that all places that play a vital role in the growth of each child – family, school and the parish faith community – can take their share of responsibility.
In this page, we offer an overview of some of the resources and other materials available to schools, families and parishes in the preparation of children for the sacraments and in their ongoing catechesis and faith development.
