Catholic Education Week


Catholic Education Week

Happening May 1 - 6, 2022, the theme for Catholic Education Week 2021 is Rebuild, Restore, Renew Together. 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.

The theme for Catholic Education Week 2022 was inspired by the following considerations:

  • In the face of the continuing reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, a strong desire by the
    planning committee, and supported by feedback from the survey, the themes for Catholic
    Education Weeks 2020 and 2021, were Igniting Hope and Nurturing Hope, and all we know
    for certain is that there will be much to Rebuild, Restore and Renew together in 2022.
  • The challenges to personal and spiritual well-being posed by the uncertainty and physical
    isolation of the current global crisis makes the timing and the concerns of Mental Health
    Week, which takes place during the same week as Catholic Education Week, all the more
  • Ongoing recognition of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission and the relevance of
    Indigenous culture and spirituality will continue to move us forward.
  • The Ministry of Education’s focus on Inclusion and Equity resonates with all educators and
    administrators as we desire to serve all of God’s children and Pope Francis’ encyclical
    entitled, Fratelli Tutti, will guide us in this good work.
