Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week Poster for HSCSD

Catholic schools are an important and vibrant part of publicly funded education in Alberta. Each year, we celebrate the gift of Catholic Education in our province. The theme, "Walking Together in Catholic Education,” is one which we have been journeying with all year in Alberta.

As always, Catholic Education in Alberta is well supported by our Catholic Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories, who have prepared a letter and a video to honour this week.


World Catholic Education Day

We also look forward to commemorating World Catholic Education Day on Thursday, May 18, 2023 where we will all wear blue and join our provincial partners in prayer and solidarity. Let us be grateful that we live in a place that encourages religious freedom and the ability to educate our children the Catholic faith! Don’t forget to use the hashtags #BlueforCatholicEd and #IBelieveinCatholicEd when sharing your posts on social media.


Celebrating Catholic Education in Our Schools

In Holy Spirit Catholic School Division, we have been creating videos for each weekday of Catholic Education Week.  These videos focus on the 5 Marks of a Catholic School and feature our local trustees, clergy, staff, families, and students, each of whom play an important role in our walk together in Catholic Education.

As the Catholic Education letter that we have received from our Alberta Bishops states, “Alberta's Catholic schools are beacons of hope for families across the province seeking faith-based education for their children." Thank you to our students, staff, and parishes; for all that you do to make Holy Spirit a beacon of hope for our communities and a great place for one another, and may God richly bless you in your role as you seek to "...walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever." (Micah 4:5)
