A commissioning ceremony is held each time a new Trustee is elected and a new member of the Senior Leadership Team is hired. As elected officials and supervisory officers, Trustees and senior staff are called to serve the Board as stewards of Catholic education. The commissioning ceremony is a faith-filled way to recognize this responsibility to support our Catholic learning communities through collaborative leadership, compassion and accountability. Individuals being commissioned promise to provide Catholic leadership each day, in all that they do and say. They pledge to work with others for the good of our students and staff, and lead them in the light of Jesus Christ.
