Celebrating Catholic Education: May 3rd – May 8th, 2020
The theme for Catholic Education Week 2020, “Igniting Hope,” reminds us that publicly funded Catholic education is a call to service. We have a shared responsibility within Catholic education to bring the saving message of Jesus Christ into the lives of our students/ your children. The theme of “Igniting Hope” reminds us, as educators, that it is our privilege to serve families who support Catholic education in the province of Ontario.
The theme for CEW 2020 was inspired by three sources:
- The recent Papal Exhortation, Christus Vivit, by Pope Francis following the 2018 Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment
- The recent Ontario Bishops’ pastoral letter, Renewing the Promise (2018)
- The Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations by the Institute for Catholic Education (2011)
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
