Catholic Education Week and World Catholic Education Day

Posted April 16, 2019

The celebration of Catholic Education Week across Canada is an opportunity for our faith communities to promote this important ministry of the Church.

The theme for Catholic Education Week 2019 is Rejoice and Be Glad (GE). The theme is inspired by Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation of the same name which speaks to the call to holiness in our world.

The apostolic exhortation states, “This is a powerful summons to all of us. You need to see the entirety of your life as a mission. Try to do so by listening to God in prayer and recognizing the signs that he gives you. Always ask the Spirit what Jesus expects from you at every moment of your life and in every decision, you must make, so as to discern its place in the mission you have received. Allow the Spirit to forge in you the personal mystery that can reflect Jesus Christ in today’s world.” (GE, 23)
