Catholic Education: Exploring Paths of Joy

Catholic Education Week takes place from Sunday, May 3 to Friday, May 8. The disciples asked Jesus to ‘increase our faith’. That is our goal in publicly funded Catholic education in collaboration with the family and the parish. We know that keeping the theme of faith alive is a constant challenge in the world of 2015. But, we can be assured by the words of the disciples, “were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road?” (Lk 24:32) We are in need of the support and prayers of the entire Catholic community to counteract the increasingly strident demand that the funding of Catholic schools be terminated. Once again we will have a province-wide mass scheduled for May 7, 2015 in our high schools organized by our Catholic Student Trustees.
