This year, all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne will celebrate Catholic Education Week 2022 from 13 to 20 March. The theme this year is ‘The Way of the Gospel’ and is based on Archbishop Peter A Comensoli’s 2021 Pastoral Letter.
There are 335 Catholic primary and secondary schools across Melbourne, enrolling more than 150,000 students and employing approximately 17,000 staff. This annual event is held to promote the ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day.
‘The Way of the Gospel’ challenges us to find the living Christ in our midst and to respond and adapt to the questions that are asked in each generation. • Where do we find the living Christ in the midst of these questions? • How might our Catholic school communities continue to bring to life the way of the gospel today and in the future? • How might we continue to invite our students, our families and our staff into the fullness of the way of the gospel?
This year the students are celebrating with an oratory trivia completion and the staff are enjoying a special morning tea.
