Discovering New Horizons

The theme has been aligned with the official Year of Youth theme for 2018 and is derived from a speech given by Pope Francis at World Youth Day 2016 where he called young people and the Church to ‘open new horizons for spreading joy’.

This theme will allow schools to easily integrate Catholic Education Week activities and materials with Year of Youth programs.
