In faithfulness to Christ’s command: “Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News!” [Mark 16:5] the Diocese of Lancaster Education Service seeks to bring the Word of God to the people of our Diocese. We achieve this through supporting schools in bearing witness to the Gospel and proclaiming the teaching of the Church and by fostering the ongoing understanding of the Faith through personal faith development and formation. We teach and nourish the Faith in its fullness so as to support the members of our school communities in the growth of their personal faith and provide places of learning and opportunities to nurture and develop the Catholic Faith and promote the sacramental life and mission of the Diocese.
The Diocese of Lancaster Education Service works with the local authorities of Blackpool, Cumbria and Lancashire. Situated next to the Cathedral the Education Service works with 84 schools and a Sixth Form College in some of the most beautiful parts of the country.
