On May 9th, Catholic education will be celebrated globally and the Canadian Catholic School Trustees’ Association encourages Canadian Catholic Schools to take part.
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.
With this year’s theme marked as You Will be My Witness, the day is a chance to reflect on how Catholic education has served parents and their children in most nations throughout the world for centuries.
CCSTA’s mandate is to promote excellence in Catholic education across Canada. Representing 80 school boards, the organization puts the spotlight on how Catholic education has helped define Canadian society, serving the nation through faith-based leading and learning. CCSTA also works hard to ensure Catholic education remains attainable for children across the country by offering the Endowment Fund and Toonies for Tuition program.
