May 6, 2019 - Message from the Superintendent
"Public Education - The Catholic Way"

Today we begin celebrating Catholic Education Week throughout Canada. Later this month, on May 30th, we will also recognize World Catholic Education Day.

I'm also pleased today to release a video on Catholic Education in Holy Spirit. This video was a joint project of the Holy Spirit ATA Local and the Board of Trustees, and was filmed and produced by Mr. Erv Fehr. I'm very proud of the results. Please take some time to view "Public Education - The Catholic Way" at your leisure. 

Catholic Education works, not just in Holy Spirit, but throughout Alberta and Canada. We always strive to do something very unique, form in faith ourselves and our students. We do this to build a stronger society that recognizes the dignity of all and to be counter cultural just as Jesus was in his time. Catholic Education has the potential to develop people of faith - not just people of spirituality.

As St. Francis of Assisi says, "Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary use words." We will always be judged by our actions and while there is always work to do, our actions speak well of Catholic Education in Holy Spirit.

Thank you for your continued commitment to and support for Catholic Education in Holy Spirit Catholic School Division. May God continue to bless you as we celebrate Catholic Education Week.
