In 2021 we are celebrating 200 years of Catholic Education in Australia. During that time, our schools and colleges have educated millions of Australians.
The official launch of the celebrations was held in February 2021. As the year progresses local state, territory and diocesan events will be held around the country.
You can watch the launch video to learn more about this significant milestone.
A National Mass will also be celebrated in every state, territory and diocese on the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians on 24 May 2021.
Australia’s bishops have written a pastoral letter to school leaders, staff, students and families to mark the 200th anniversary of Catholic education in Australia.
The letter, 200 Years Young, recognises the contribution of religious, clergy and lay people to the foundation of Catholic education, and the distinctive role Catholic schools play in educating and forming young people of faith and service in their communities.
