Living as Joyful Disciples During Catholic Education Week

During the week of May 5 to May 10, 201​9, the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) will celebrate the significant contribution that Catholic education has made to the community, the province and to Canada.

Throughout the week, students, staff, parents, parishes and members of our community will participate in a variety of activities and reflections that celebrate the distinctiveness of Catholic education.

The province-wide theme of this year, 'Living as Joyful Disciples', reminds us that our Catholic schools exist to help students form and grow as disciples of Christ.

The five sub-themes for Catholic Education Week are:

Rooted in Prayer
Living in Community
Doing Justice & Creating Hope
Journeying Together in Faith
Sharing the Good News

What's Happening Across Our Board

10th Annual Walk With Jesus: students and staff from across HCDSB will walk in solidarity from Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School to the Mattamy National Cycling Centre (Milton Velodrome) to demonstrate their 'faith in action' on Thursday, May 9th. Mass will be led by Father Pierre Caouette at the Milton Velodrome, beginning at 12:20 p.m. Participants can follow along and join the conversation on Twitter #HCWWJ​. ​​
