What is Ember?
The Ember Programme is a faith leadership training programme for students at senior level in secondary schools. The students are trained to become faith leaders in their schools and in some cases they act as mentors for incoming students at Junior Level. This programme is coordinated by the Archdiocese of Dublin Education Secretariat and has been developed in partnership with a number of professionals who engage with young people in a faith capacity. For further information, contact the Post-Primary Diocesan Adviser.
The Irish Bishops' Drugs Initiative has prepared a number of programmes as part of its pastoral response to substance abuse. These programmes are offered to parishes and schools around the time of Confirmation.
