The second collection next week will be for the Catholic Education Service. The CES acts on behalf of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference to support Catholic education. Catholic schools make up 10% of the national total of maintained schools. There are 2000 Catholic schools in England and Wales educating over 800,000 students. The CES is the chief negotiating and advisory body on matters affecting all aspects of Catholic education and provides financial assistance for school transport in rural areas.
