Greetings Parents:

In their pastoral letter for Catholic education, Renewing the Promise (2018), our bishops described a vision of Catholic education rooted in the Gospel story of the Road to Emmaus. The tale reminds us all that we are at our best when we are a community that builds relationships; encourages engagement and instills hope; and forms joyful disciples.

The challenge we currently face is clear: how do we continue this journey — Catholic education — in the face of such immense restrictions?
