Our Catholic Schools
We are blessed in Portlaoise to have such good schools and dedicated teachers and staffs. We are very grateful to the Catholic Schools of our Parish who, as they educate our young boys and girls, have at their heart the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ. Our Catholic Schools are welcoming and inclusive to all and create a safe and happy learning environment where every child is encouraged and enabled to develop their full and unique potential as human beings made in the image and likeness of God.
