Catholic Education Week
In-person Catholic Education Week celebrations have been suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each year, Catholic schools in Saskatchewan participate in a week-long celebration to remember and share the gift of Catholic education. Join over 40,000 students in Saskatchewan—almost 20,000 with Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools—to celebrate the gift of Catholic faith-based education.
Catholic Education Week: May 9 - 16, 2021
World Catholic Education Day: Thursday, May 13, 2021
A livestream liturgy with His Excellency the Most. Rev. Bishop Mark Hagemoen will begin at 10:00 a.m. for all the faithful of Saskatchewan at https://saskatoonmass.com/ This liturgy will also be archived on the same site for viewing at a later time.
This year we will be taking time each day, with students and staff all across our province, to pray together as disciples who are Nurturing Hope. Since we are not able to gather as a group, please join us in prayer each day at a time that is convenient for you.
The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is “Catholic Education: Nurturing Hope/L’éducation catholique: Cultiver l’espérance”.
There are five sub-themes, one for each day of Catholic Education Week, aimed at helping staff and students to reflect more fully on what Nurturing Hope means to them. The five sub-themes are
Monday, May 10 – Preparing the Earth / Préparer la terre
Tuesday, May 11 – Sowing Seeds of Gratitude / Semer la gratitude
Wednesday, May 12 – Cultivating Relationships / Cultiver nos relations
Thursday, May 13 – World Catholic Education Day – Harvesting New Fruit / Récolter de nouveaux fruits
Friday, May 14 – Marvelling in Wonder / S’émerveiller
