About the Book
Catholic Education: A Lifelong Journey is an exciting investigation of Catholic education in the parish, home and school, exploring the various ways Catholic education is present not only in Catholic schooling but throughout the whole of a Catholic person’s life.

This extensive volume brings together leading and emerging scholars in Catholic education, from both Ireland and Britain, who offer important insights into the lifelong nature of the Catholic education journey, and seek to stimulate a deep sense of enquiry, exploration, reflection and action.

As a whole, this volume encourages an integrated, faith-community focused, intergenerational, open, creative and generous approach to what Catholic education, broadly conceived of, can be.
