May 12, 2008 -
The Sudbury Catholic District School Board celebrated Catholic Education Week 2008, from April 27 to May 2. During this week the Catholic Community celebrated 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” celebrated 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 one . . . to Act Justly
Day two . . . to Love Tenderly
Day three . . . to Walk Humbly
Day four . . . to Serve Generously
Day five . . . to Live Peacefully
Continuing with classroom celebrations and activities in the months preceding Catholic Education Week Sudbury Catholic Schools and Catholic School Councils prepared for this year’s theme. Prayer activities contained references to the counsel of the prophet Micah and that of Christ’s discipleship with each activity reflecting on one of the above five sub-themes of Catholic Education Week. In addition, schools celebrated Catholic Education Week by undertaking activities at all grade levels.
Sudbury Catholic Schools would like to thank all students, parents, teachers and staff for their excellent participation in the special activities and prayer celebrations that marked this year’s Catholic Education Week! Please enjoy the enclosed slide show!
