Every year, 40 days after Easter on Ascension Thursday, Catholics across the globe give thanks for the gift that is Catholic education through the celebration of World Catholic Education Day.
The next World Catholic Education Day will take place on Thursday, May 14, 2015.
Catholic education has served nations for centuries through teaching students in their faith. Throughout Canada, provinces, territories and dioceses dedicate special days or weeks to celebrate Catholic education. In keeping with these celebrations, World Catholic Education Day is a time for Catholics around the world to take a moment to pause, reflect and pray on the gift that is Catholic education.
The Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association has once again generously offered the use of their Catholic Education Week resources to help celebrate World Catholic Education Day in Canada. Visit OCSTA’s website to view these resources.
Catholic schools, boards and parishes across Canada are asked to recognize World Catholic Education Day through prayer and celebration on May 14th.
