NEW! - 2013 DPCDSB Catholic Education Week Events:
NEW! - Theme Song: Together in Faith (PowerPoint Presentation)
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’s celebration entitled, “Catholic Education: Growing Together in Faith” is scheduled for the week of May 5 – May 12, 2013. We are celebrating the Year of Faith along with the rest of the church. We remember that we are called to ‘grow in faith’, to bloom where we are planted and that we are rooted in Christ. The scriptural passage that guides our theme is: ‘That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.’ Ephesians 3:17
This year’s five sub-themes, one for each of the five days of Catholic Education Week, help students to understand the rich meaning of this year’s theme:
Faith that is … Rooted
Faith that is … Nurtured
Faith that is … Discerned
Faith that is … Witnessed
Faith that is … Celebrated
Catholic Education Week begins on a Sunday to highlight the partnership that remains the foundation of Catholic education between our Catholic schools and local Catholic parishes. Throughout Catholic Education Week, we ask you to reflect on the significance of Catholic education’s presence and contribution in our Church, and in our society. We invite all members of our community, to participate in the celebrations and activities that will mark the celebration of Catholic Education Week 2013 in our schools.
