Cathoic Education Week 2018

This year’s Catholic Education Week theme is “Renewing the Promise.”

The theme for CEW 2018 draws upon previous documents on Ontario Catholic education, namely, “This Moment of Promise” (1989), “Fulfilling the Promise” (1993) and “Our Catholic Schools” (2006-2007). These three documents, while several years apart from each other, all speak of the unique mission of Ontario Catholic education, the importance of its shared leadership by all those involved in Catholic education and the critical role of Catholic education in contemporary society.

Catholic Education Week 2018 combines the themes of reconciliation, solidarity, love, justice and ecology.

There are five sub-themes for each day of Catholic Education Week:

Day 1:              Remembering the Promise

Faire mémoire de la promesse

Day 2:             The Promise is Within You

La promesse est en toi

Day 3:             Praying the Promise

Prier la promesse

Day 4:             Living the Promise

Vivre la promesse

Day 5:             Proclaiming the Promise

Annoncer la promesse


Every year, the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) provides our Catholic schools with a resource kit to help schools prepare for Catholic Education Week. Using these resources as well as our own developed activities, we have prepared a series of activities which will highlight how our school is Renewing the Promise
