The Diocese of Elphin wishes to consult the Catholic community as to how they believe the diocese should engage with the various stakeholders in education regarding the future of Catholic education in the West Athlone area.
- Does the Catholic community in this area support the idea of Catholic education at primary and post-primary level, with all this involves? (See Bishop Kevin Doran’s pastoral letter A Future Full of Hope)
- Is the Catholic community open to considering a vision for primary education in the area which respects the need for facilitating diversity?
- Is the Catholic community willing to join the Bishop in developing a vision for post-primary education for all the boys and girls of the area to ensure that they have a school, or schools, which can fully cater for the needs of the 21st century and beyond?
If you wish to take part in the consultation, you may make a submission in writing. Please sign your submission and send it before 7th April 2015 to: Elphin Diocesan Office, St. Mary’s, Temple Street, Sligo.
