Together with the Diocese of Hamilton and associated Catholic school boards, we acknowledge 'the gift that is in you' (1 Timothy 4:14) as we honour and celebrate our Catholic community.

The annual Diocesan Mass was established in 2008, and each year, seven Catholic school boards and one Catholic University come together to give thanks for the gift of publicly funded Catholic education. Participating school boards and universities include: Brant Haldimand Norfolk CDSB, Bruce-Grey CDSB, Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir, Halton CDSB, Hamilton-Wentworth CDSB, St. Jerome's University, Waterloo CDSB, and Wellington CDSB.

The celebration will begin with an acknowledgement of our land, followed by a theatrical presentation by St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary students, led by teacher, Ms. Sauve.

A Eucharistic Celebration will also take place with His Excellency, the Most Reverend Douglas Crosby, Bishop of Hamilton. A reception will be held at the Holy Cross Parish Hall following Mass.​​​
