Primary Schools

The primary religious education programme Grow in Love (Veritas) supports the implementation of the Catholic Preschool and Primary Religious Education Curriculum for Ireland and the delivery of the Core Syllabus for Religious Education (NI). The thrust of Grow in Love is towards catechesis on the sacraments. It encourages conversations between home, parish communities and schools about the model of sacramental preparation and celebration in parishes so that all places that play a vital role in the growth of each child – family, school and the parish faith community – can take their share of responsibility.
