Based on the teaching of Vatican II, the Catholic Church has the obligation to preach the Gospel and to teach its doctrines and its disciplines to the faithful. One particular means of fulfilling this mission and mandate is through the medium of Catholic schools. The origins of the Catholic school can be traced to the earliest centuries of the Church’s history, usually attached to a church.
The Bishop is the recognised patron of the Catholic school in his diocese. In that capacity, the Bishop has certain rights and responsibilities, particularly in relation to ethos, the appointment of the Board of Management, the appointment of Chairpersons, the appointment of staff, enrolment/admission policy, insurance and buildings.
Our Lady’s Grove is a Catholic Primary School, under the trusteeship of the Religious of Jesus and Mary under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Dublin.
