Catholic Education Week

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, which took place from May 1-5, celebrated the theme “Walking Forward Together.” The week began with the celebration of the annual Board-wide Mass at Holy Cross Parish in Kemptville, which was led by Fr. Rod McNeil of St. Francis de Sales Parish (Smiths Falls).

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 was the hallmark of each event.
