Upon Whose Shoulders We Stand is a 35 minute documentary celebrating the immeasurable contribution of Catholic Religious Orders to the education of our youth in Ontario Catholic schools over the past 150 years.
The film features interviews with teachers, students, historians and members of Religious Congregations across Ontario. It is a story of individuals who were inspired to cross oceans and live in hostile environments in service to their faith. It is a story without an ending, as it will be the new educators entering the vocation of teaching in our Catholic system who will write its next chapters. The Catholic Education Foundation of Ontario, along with the Institute for Catholic Education (ICE) and the Sisters of St. Joseph (Toronto) have joined to together with many other groups, including Wellington Catholic DSB to produce this film about our Catholic school history.
