Below is an overview of the key facets of the work of the various teams in the section: the Religious Education and Faith Formation Team (REFF), Catholic Studies, Family Faith Formation Team, the Catholic Office for Youth and Young Adults, the Catholic Resource and Information Service, and the Catholic Schools Music Festival.
