Catholic Education Week May 10-14, 2021

Posted on May 10th, 2021

Each year, supporters of Catholic education across the province join together in prayer and celebration for the gift of Catholic education.

The theme for Catholic Education Week 2021, which runs from May 10 to 14, is "those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:31).

Within EICS, schools will be doing a number of faith-filled activities during the week starting on Sunday, May 9th when the winners of the GrACE Celebrating Catholic Education contest will be celebrated within the parishes.
