Mission Statement            
The Spiritan Education Trust (formerly Des Places Educational Association Ltd (DEA)) is committed to continuing and developing the Catholic education tradition of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (Spiritans) in Ireland, as Patron of its schools.

Charged by the Congregation to direct and supervise its educational mission, the Spiritan Education Trust undertakes meaningful communication with school management and fosters co-operation among all stakeholders. It also undertakes strategic planning, both educational and financial.
  The Association encourages education policies, programmes and practices which nurture and develop the abilities, talents and interests of each person in ways that promote and champion active citizenship and solidarity with people who are marginalised.

Partnership, openness and accountability will characterise the work of the Spiritan Education Trust.
