SCDSB Celebrates Catholic Education Week: April 28 - May 3

April 28, 2003 - Catholic Education Week is an annual event celebrated by Catholic school boards and schools across the province. It is a time for students, teachers and parents to celebrate teaching excellence and student achievement. This year’s Catholic Education Week theme “Rooted in Christ” provides us with a strong message - we are one with Christ, joined together and rooted as is a tree. Like the tree, we must hold our heads high and tall. We should be proud of the Catholic family we belong to. We are held together by the roots of our faith, our teachings and the sacraments we have received since birth.

Last year, Pope John Paul II united our Catholic communities during World Youth Days by bringing the Holy Cross to various cities. Through this event, he succeeded in joining our Catholic families - rooting the family together as one.

Our Catholic family is rooted in a vision to instill Catholic values, attitudes and actions in its students. Our students demonstrated their knowledge of the Gospel by participating in activities that have a religious focus such as school mass, consoling grieving classmates, helping those in need through food share programs, Jump Rope for Heart and many other worthy events.

Let us encourage our students to maintain their roots in the Catholic faith. We invite all members of our Catholic community to participate in local events marking Catholic Education Week 2003. Above all, we invite everyone to pray that we will be faithful servants to God’s gift of Catholic education in this province. We also encourage all to pray for the people of all nations somehow affected by the unrest of these times. Please pray that our faith will ease some of the troubles and bring peace throughout the world.

Let us make this Catholic Education Week one to remember!
