Director's Message: Catholic Education Week 2008

April 25, 2008 - Catholic Education Week takes place this year from April 27 to May 2, 2008. During this week the Catholic Community celebrates the unique and distinctive contribution that Catholic Schools make to our students, our community and our Province. Catholic Education Week is a welcome opportunity to celebrate the Mission of our Catholic Schools as they strive to integrate the Gospel values of Jesus Christ in every aspect of the school’s curriculum.

This year’s theme, “We are Called” celebrates the fact that each of us has been called by God, and not just called as a collective, but called by name. “I have called you and you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1) Amid life’s joy’s and sorrows, its challenges and doubts, these words can be a source of inspiration and a reaffirmation of faith.

Five sub-themes, one for each of the five days of Catholic Education Week help us to understand the rich meaning of this year’s theme.

Day 1...to Act Justly
Day 2...to Love Tenderly
Day 3...to Walk Humbly
Day 4...to Serve Generously
Day 5...to Live Peacefully

Catholic Education Week 2008 begins on a Sunday to highlight the partnership that remains the foundation of Catholic Education. We particularly want to underline the relationship of Catholic Schools with the broader Church community, especially with the parishes that remain the centre of the worshiping faith community.

Throughout Catholic Education Week, we encourage students, parents, teachers and staff to take pride in their 160-year plus tradition that has enriched generations through the continued support of all our Catholic partners.
