World Catholic Education Day (May 10, 2018)
That you may know Him better
Every year, 40 days after Easter on Ascension Thursday, Catholics across the globe give thanks for the gift that is Catholic education through the celebration of World Catholic Education Day.
World Catholic Education Day is on May 10, 2018.
Catholic education has served nations for centuries through teaching students in their faith. Throughout Canada, provinces, territories, and dioceses dedicate special days or weeks to celebrate Catholic education. In keeping with these celebrations, World Catholic Education Day is a time for Catholics around the world to take a moment to pause, reflect and pray on the gift that is Catholic education.
This year's focus:
All of the schools in our division will be focusing on one of the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching: Common Good. To seek the common good is to fulfill Jesus’ command to do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Pursuing the common good means working towards the greatest good for all persons. We must love our neighbour locally and globally.

We are wearing blue!
Everyone is encouraged to wear blue in support of Catholic education. Blue signifies constancy, fidelity, genuineness and aspiration and is especially associated with the Blessed Virgin. This is very appropriate as we celebrate Mary during the month of May.
