This year’s Catholic Education Week theme is “Living as Joyful Disciples.” May 5-10th, 2019
The 2019 theme was inspired by three sources: Renewing the Promise, The Pastoral Letter on Catholic Education from the Bishops of Ontario; Gaudete et exsultate, the Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis on the Call to Holiness; and Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, the October 2018 Synod of Bishops. Mindful of the Synod on Youth, the theme and sub-themes are very much directed to the young people in our schools, especially in their growth in holiness and their formation as disciples of Christ through the discernment of their vocational pathways. In the section of Renewing the Promise entitled, “A Community that Forms Joyful Disciples,” we read, “Our Catholic schools help to form joyful disciples as hearts and minds are opened to the transforming love of God and to the flame of faith in action. On a daily basis, Catholic schools demonstrate the joy of believing and witness the Good News to the communities that they serve.”
There are five sub-themes for each day of Catholic Education Week:
Day 1: Rooted in Prayer
Day 2: Living in Community
Day 3: Doing Justice & Creating Hope
Day 4: Journeying Together in Faith
Day 5: Sharing the Good News
