Setting the Context:
Catholic Education Week is held each year in May in the 29 Ontario Catholic school boards. The theme for CEW 2018, Renewing the Promise, draws upon previous documents on Ontario Catholic education, namely, “This Moment of Promise” (1989), “Fulfilling the Promise” (1993) and “Our Catholic Schools” (2006-2007). These three documents, while several years apart from each other, all speak of the unique mission of Ontario Catholic education, the importance of its shared leadership by all those involved in Catholic education and the critical role of Catholic education in contemporary society. For 2017-2018, these issues are further explored via an electronic survey that was organized by the Institute for Catholic Education (ICE) that will lead to a gathering of the Catholic community in the Fall of 2017. From the discussions that emerge from this summit, the Ontario Bishops will be producing a new statement on Ontario Catholic education, “Renewing the Promise,” which is expected out in the Spring of 2018.”
