Catholic Education Week 2018
Each year, the Catholic community of Ontario engages in a week-long celebration of the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week. This year, Catholic Education Week took place from May 6 through 11. The event celebrated the theme “Renewing the Promise,” which draws on documents created by the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario about Catholic education in Ontario. The week began with the celebration of the annual Board-wide Mass at Holy Cross Parish in Kemptville, which was led by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast of the Archdiocese of Ottawa.
Throughout the week, schools shone a great light on the ways in which CDSBEO Catholic schools celebrate Catholic education. The week was marked by special activities and events for all grade levels, including prayer celebrations, service activities, celebrations of the arts, sporting events, and fundraisers; the spirit of service and learning was the hallmark of each event.
