Catholic Schools Week 2023, themed as ‘Walking Together in Faith & Love’, will take place from Sunday 22 January to Sunday 29 January next. For this year’s annual celebration of Catholic education, CSW will draw on three features of the Synodal Pathway: ‘Communion, Participation and Mission’.  The theme for CSW 2023 is dedicated to celebrating the gift of Catholic education and recognizing the love and generosity of the entire school community: student, staff and home. According to Mr Alan Hynes, Chief Executive of the Catholic Education Partnership, “Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of contribution of Catholic education to individuals, to society, and to the global common good.  Over the week, students will reflect on their own relationship with God, with their school community, and with their families.  Inspired by the teachings of Pope Francis, our schools are encouraged to help bring joyful hope to our collective future through a relationship with Jesus.”

Seeing your life through the Lens of the Gospels

  Sunday of The Word of God • Catholic Schools Week begins

‘The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light’ … Jesus applies this to himself and his message. Who have been the Jesus people who have been a source of light to you? Have you been such a light for others?

His message was a call to repentance, to a change of attitude toward God, from seeing God as one to be feared, to seeing God as a God of love. When have you heard that call in your life? What was it like for you?

Jesus invited disciples to join him in his mission. In responding, the disciples ‘left their nets’ to follow Jesus. Sometimes we have to disentangle ourselves from other things to give ourselves freely and wholeheartedly to a commitment. Have you experienced being ‘enmeshed’ and being free? Where did you find life? 

In v 23 we have a summary of the ministry of Jesus – ‘proclaiming the good news of the kingdom’ and witnessing to this by teaching and healing. Who have been the people you have known who have witnessed to the ‘kingdom’, the reign of God in our world? What have been the signs that accompanied their witness? When have you done this yourself?
