- Diploma in Catholic Education at St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth
A new qualification for Second Level Teachers called the Diploma in Catholic Education is currently being offered by St. Patrick’s College Maynooth. This course represents a partnership between St. Patrick’s College-Maynooth and the University of Notre Dame.
The programme is being offered to post-primary teachers, and those currently undertaking a post-primary teacher education. The purpose is to help form teachers to work in Catholic schools, despite the fact that approximately 57% of post-primary schools in Ireland are Catholic. It aims to encourage and support committed and enthusiastic teachers, and could have a considerable impact on the ethos of post-primary Catholic schools. It is important to note that this qualification does not certify teachers to teach religious education. If you desire to do so, please see the Higher Diploma in Theological Studies.

- Rebuilding the Organ is the last major project in the College Chapel
The organ has had two major rebuilds in its life, in the 1920's and in the 1970's. However, by now, a total rebuild is required.
The project will take two years. Some of the ranks will be totally replaced, while others will be voiced and polished, and returned to their setting on the Gallery in the Summer of 2013.
