Catholic Education Week 2023 - We are Many, We are One

We are Many, We are One

During the week of April 30 until May 5, 2023, join us as we celebrate Catholic Education Week 2023 - We are Many, We are One

Each year, the Catholic community of Ontario engages in a week-long celebration of the distinct identity and significant contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week. This year’s celebration is titled "We Are Many, We Are One" was inspired by the following considerations, as outlined by the Ontario Catholic School Trustee's Association (OCSTA):

• The Church worldwide has embarked on a synodal process, “a synod on synodality,” which centres on intentional listening: listening to each other and listening to the Holy Spirit. We have each been asked to actively reach out and listen to the voices and experiences of people where they are at and consider what steps the Holy Spirit is inviting us to take as we walk together. As the Catholic Bishops of Ontario highlighted in Renewing the Promise, “It is about taking the time to walk alongside one another, to listen and to teach, and in doing so, to transform"
• Ongoing recognition of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission and the importance of Indigenous; culture and spirituality as we move forward together
• The commitment of Catholic school boards to promote the dignity of the human person. Pope Francis’ encyclical entitled, Fratelli Tutti, will guide us in this good work
• The challenges to personal and spiritual well-being exacerbated by the pandemic makes the timing and the concerns of Mental Health Week, which takes place during the same week as Catholic Education Week, all the more relevant.

You can find more information on all the official Catholic Education Week 2023 happenings over at OCSTA's website. You may also find the official #CEW2023 promotional poster right here and the official CEW2023 theme song below!
