Each year, the “Catholic community of Ontario engages in a week-long celebration of the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week”. This year, Catholic Education Week will be celebrated from May 2 – 7. This years’ theme, Nurturing Hope builds on last year’s theme and calls for us to reflect on what nurturing hope means to each one of us. The theme also calls us to reflect on the many ways that we can nurture hope in others.
Each day, our Catholic school communities will reflect one subtheme:
Day 1: Preparing the Earth
Day 2: Sowing Seeds of Gratitude
Day 3: Cultivating Relationships
Day 4: Harvesting New Fruit
Day 5: Marvelling in Wonder
All Saints CES is so very proud to celebrate Catholic Education Week through prayer and special activities throughout the week that we hope helps to nurture hope in our greater learning community. We will begin our week in prayer through a school wide virtual liturgy, lovingly led by our Grade 2 students. The remainder of the week will also consist of an interactive Wellness Presentation, a Gratitude & Hope Assembly, with special guest speaker Cole Powers, a special message of hope from our AST staff, and so much more. Please find attached a highlight of the themes and activities we will be celebrating as a school community, and be sure to make note of some recommendations of supplemental activities that can take place at home.
We thank you for your continued support and commitment to Catholic Education, as we attempt to nurture hope in our students and one another.
