Catholic Education Week
Catholic Education Week for 2022 is May 22 - 29, 2022, and World Catholic Education Day is May 26 (Ascension Day).
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.

Give us the courage and strength to reconcile relationships that need care and healing,
and nurture us to Rebuild, Restore and Renew Together, now, and always.
Guide us in restoring our world,
