Each year, the Catholic community of Ontario engages in a week-long celebration of the distinct identity and significant contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week. This year’s celebration around the theme “We are called to love,” took place during the week of May 5 to 10, and students engaged in many meaningful activities and reflections to deepen their awareness and understanding of the gift of Catholic education. Principal of Religious and Family Life Education and Equity and Inclusion Renée Rozon presented details to the Board of Trustees.

The week began with the annual Board Mass, held at St. Philip Neri Church in Toledo, and celebrated by Archbishop Michael Mulhall. The comprehensive resource kit of activities and reflections provided by the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) was shared with all schools, who also celebrated this important week through various activities such as liturgies, assemblies, musical performances, community clean-ups, and nature walks. The many events which took place within school communities were posted on the CDSBEO website.

“We are so blessed to have such passion for Catholic education in our schools. It is amazing to see the activities that have taken place during this very special week, and I would like to thank everyone for the work they have done to make this week so memorable,” concluded CDSBEO Chair Chair, Sue Wilson.
