Toronto Catholic District School Board

Thanksgiving Message

From Director of Education 

And Chair of the Board 

During the month of October, our schools celebrate the virtue of gratitude. To borrow from the resources provided for our Virtue of the Month, which states that “the secret to happiness is to have gratitude”, here are some important questions for all of us to ponder:
·         What are you thankful for?
·         What should we most be thankful for?
·         Who are you thankful to in your school, parish and at home?
·         Who is a person everyone should be thankful to?
At Toronto Catholic, we are thankful for our students who learn, grow and play in our schools. We are grateful for the parents and families who support, love and nurture our students, and who have started them off on the path of learning and discovery. We are thankful for the staff who mentor, inspire and guide our students so that they can achieve their full potential. And we are grateful to live in a province where Catholic schools continue to be fully funded so that families are able to choose a faith based education for their children without economic hardship.
This Thanksgiving, we encourage you to take a moment to think about all that you are thankful for.
We wish you and your family joy this Thanksgiving weekend. Enjoy the time with your loved ones.

“If we can realize that everything is God’s gift, how happy will our hearts be! Everything is his gift. He is our strength! Saying ‘thank you’ is such an easy thing and yet so hard. How often do we say ‘thank you’ to one another in our families? These are essential words for our life in common. If families can say these three things, they will be fine: ‘sorry,’ ‘excuse me,’ ‘thank you.’ How often do we say ‘thank you’ in our families? How often do we say ‘thank you’ to those who help us, those close to us, those at our side throughout life? All too often we take everything for granted.—Pope Francis
