Who We are

The Le Chéile Schools Trust now comprises the schools of fifteen religious congregations. The aim of the Trust is to carry on the legal, financial and inspirational role of trusteeship that has, up to now, been done by individual congregations. It carries out the legal and inspirational role of trusteeship . This is a significant development in Irish education as the Catholic Church and the individual religious congregations renew and reformulate their commitment to Irish education.

Covid – 19 - A Message for the Le Chéile Community

Le Cheile Schools Trust wishes all our school communities good health in these difficult days. As the Prayer says, we are not abandoned. We may feel somewhat isolated but we are not alone. It is a humbling experience to realise that, with all the talent in the world, we cannot immediately overcome a force of nature such as this virus but we have faith and hope and we believe that a cure will be found and life will return to normal.

In the meantime, we can live out our Le Cheile values of care and respect by watching out for others, being kind and considerate and following the advice of the experts so that we do not take any unnecessary risks or pose unnecessary risks to others.

We regret that any Le Cheile gatherings scheduled until 29th March are postponed or cancelled but of course recognise that this is necessary in order to contain or delay the spread of Covid-19. If you wish to contact any of the Le Cheile team you’re welcome to do so either by email or our mobile phones. We will also be sharing resources on our Twitter (@lecheiletrust) and Facebook (Le Cheile Schools Trust) pages.

For you has God commanded his angels
to keep you in all your ways.
They shall bear you upon their hands,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.

Psalm 91

Since you, O God, are with us,
nothing that has happened, nothing still to come,
can rob us of our hope in Christ.
Sustain us, we beg you,
during this time of uncertainty.
Bless all the emergency and medical personnel
who are caring for the sick and working to contain the outbreak.
Grant swift recovery to those who are affected
and comfort to their families and loved ones.
Encourage those who are afraid.
Bind us now, more than ever,
to you and to each other,
so that we may triumph
by the power of him who loves us,
our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
