Dear R.E. Teacher / Chaplain,

March Resources
The March Resources on our website have been updated; offering plenty of ideas for your lessons in the weeks ahead.
Lent Resources
As Lent begins (with Ash Wednesday on March 1), see our updated Lent Resources, which include the Hearing, Happening, Hoping Series for Lent 2017.
Emmanuel 2017
As we are now counting down to the Emmanuel Concerts; perhaps you might have the opportunity to explore this year's music, at a deeper level with your students, using the Emmanuel 2017 Classroom Resources. The concerts take place in the Helix: March 6 - 9
Nua Film Series & A Further Save-the-Date
Have you booked your place at the NUA Film Series Launch on March 14? 
Busted Halo
This reflection - written in anticipation of the Lenten season - may serve as a source of nourishment for us all as Religious Educators: Pruning for Lent. Also on Busted Halo, you'll see some other interesting links: Did Jesus Ever Fight With His Disciples? & Why is Lent 40 Days Long?
Promoting Tolerance & Love of Neighbour - March 21 
As March 21 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, take a look at this article first published in The Hoya - Viewpoint: Towards Racial Reconciliation.
A new Religion for Living Resource for Section D 
Section D - The Question of Faith is always a powerful aspect of the Junior Cycle Syllabus to engage students in conversations about their values and opinions. This new and comprehensive resource from Religion for Living: Questions about Life will serve as a great support.
Huffington Post - Who Would Jesus Deport? 
In light of recent reports from the US, this article might serve as a means to guide students in a conversation around the challenge to live by Gospel values, true discipleship, etc: Who Would Jesus Deport? 
Kind regards,
