Being the Body of Christ: Catholic Education Week 2005

May 13, 2005 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board together with its family of schools celebrated Catholic Education Week this year from May 1 to May 6, 2005. During this week, the Catholic community took the opportunity to reaffirm the distinctive contribution that Catholic schools make to our students, our community and our society.

This year’s theme, “Being the Body of Christ”, was particularly appropriate in this “Year of the Eucharist.” The theme reminds us of the ultimate reality of an education rooted in Christ; namely, through the body of believers and the communion of the Eucharist, the divine is made “just as real and as radically physical as when Jesus of Nazareth, in the flesh, walked the dirt roads of Palestine.” Through our intimate participation in the life of Christ as Christ’s body, we “keep God present to humanity and to the world.”

Catholic Education Week 2005 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 center of the worshipping faith community.

Throughout Catholic Education Week, we hope that everyone in our school community reflected on the significance of Catholic Education’s presence in and contribution to our Church and our society. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board 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!
