WELCOME TO THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY SECONDARY SCHOOL

 

Catholic University School is a private, Catholic school for boys from 3 years to 18 years, and for girls for pre-school.

Under the Trusteeship of the Marist Fathers, CUS is located in the heart of Dublin, on Lower Leeson Street

The Marist Order was founded in 1836 and almost immediately the Marists set up schools which emphasised excellence in learning and provided a context which would develop a pupil's sense of values in accordance with the Gospel. We believe passionately in the value of the education that we provide to the pupils who attend Catholic University School.

The best way to learn is through experience and we believe that CUS offers an experience of a Christian community that will help each pupil that comes to it to become the person that God intended him to be. We believe in providing a balance in pupil's lives by offering opportunities to develop rounded personalities and a sense of responsibility in their personal lives. We do this because we believe in educating the whole person - their minds and bodies but above all their hearts and spirits.

Please enjoy our website. For any further information please contact the school office.

During the current school closure the CUS chess club has been running an online chess championship, one for 1st years and one for all other years.

First Year Tournament: Mondays 17:00 - 18:00
All other years: Tuesday 17:00 - 18:00

The tournaments are hosted on the online chess website “Lichess” which is password protected.

While the tournaments are competitive in nature they also have an element of fun and camaraderie with players tending to exchange messages of goodwill with each other after each game and discussing what they could have done better.

Advent
As we are coming to the end of advent, the Ember Team has asked us to reflect with the following prayer.

Lord Jesus,
Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.
We who have so much to do and seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day,
We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.
We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.
To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!'
Amen.

I served sometimes three masses there every morning in 1940’s, I lived in Hatch Street close by, most of them in fifteen minutes, old memories. Member of the junior and later senior St. Vincent DePaul, so I witnessed the poverty of those days. Shocking to look back on, right in my neighbourhood. Good to know students are packing so many hampers for the undernourished. Good job lads.

Debating
Yesterday our annual Literary and Debating Society Christmas debate took place. The motion was "This House Believes Santa Should be a Woman" and the motion was passed. Well done to all involved.

Prayer for the CUS Community from the Ember Team:
Dear Lord,

In these challenging times we seek hope and strength from our CUS community. Let us look to those who have paved the way for us, especially our founder St John Henry Newman who had the vision

Loving God,

May all of us at CUS, with it's Marist heart, be welcoming and respectful of each other.

May we realise that while we are separated at present the ties that bind us together as a community are still strong, if not stronger than they were previously.
