CEIST is the new trustee body for the voluntary secondary schools of the Daughters of Charity, the Presentation Sisters, the Sisters of the Christian Retreat, the Sisters of Mercy and the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.

CEIST Holy Week Retreat

On Passion Sunday teachers from CEIST schools North, South, East and West made their way to the Tearmann Spirituality Centre in Glendalough, looking forward to making time for reflection and prayer.

The retreat was directed by Fr. Michael Rodgers, now in his nineteenth year doing this great work. He was assisted by Sr. Breda Ahearne C.P.

Teachers truly enjoyed every moment together and CEIST is delighted to have been able to facilitate the opportunity for them to take the time out to deepen their spiritual selves.


Leadership and Change in Faith Based Second Level Schools

Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick are holding a symposium on May 26th and 27th. This event should be of interest to school Principals and members of school boards of management.

It is hoped that the event can explore ways in which schools can, where possible, be more explicit about their Catholic ethos and develop ways to encourage and support it in whatever ways are possible.
