Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week 2024

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, "Courage To Lead,” 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 9, 2024 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.

As the Catholic Education letter that we have received from our Alberta Bishops states, “Catholic schools have the distinctive mission to integrate faith and reason, providing students with an education that not only challenges them academically but also nurtures faith formation." 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 "...do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)
