Catholic Education Sunday - November 8, 2020

Posted on Nov 3rd, 2020

Catholic Education in Alberta will be celebrated on Sunday, November 8. The theme for this year - Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31) and is especially relevant and inspiring during this time of COVID. Throughout the division. EICS schools will be participating at their local parishes in celebration of Catholic Education Sunday.   

This year's theme was chosen for a number of reasons:

  1. Our theme is rooted in scripture. God's people have experienced trial and been called to hope and renewal throughout all generations
  2. The Alberta Bishops have set in motion a movement of Christian renewal during this time of pandemic
  3. Pope Francis, in his new Encyclical: Fratelli Tutti uses "hope" as a central theme during his reflections and call to action
  4. Hope and Renew are verbs...actions. This theme invites us to action. How will you HOPE? How will your RENEW?
