The theme for Catholic Education Week 2019, which is being celebrated from May 5 to 10, is Living as Joyful Disciples. The St. Clair Catholic District School Board will join with other Catholic school boards across the province to celebrate the significant contribution that Catholic education makes in our communities, the province and to Canada.
The 2019 theme was inspired by three sources: Renewing The Promise, the Pastoral Letter on Catholic Education from the Bishops of Ontario; Gaudete et exsultate, the Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis on the Call to Holiness; and Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, the October 2018 Synod of Bishops.
"Each year, Catholic Education Week offers an opportunity to reflect on the importance of Catholic education in our schools and in each of the communities we serve," says Deb Crawford, Director of Education.
"Through the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations, our students become faith-filled responsible citizens and life-long learners, who give back to our communities in countless ways."
Special activities are planned at each of our schools throughout Catholic Education Week. Some activities celebrate our faith; some focus on learning excellence through literacy and numeracy events, technology and celebrations of the arts; and other demonstrate our commitment of service through acts of charity.
