Catholic Education in our Schools

2015 TogetherWithOneVoice Banner.jpgEvery three years our board (TCDSB) launches a pastoral plan that helps to nurture our Catholic community. The theme for the 2015-2018 academic years will be “Together with one voice: Harmonizing our Faith through Family, Parish and School”.  This partnership of family, parish and school is the strongest foundation of our Catholic system and builds “an inclusive learning community rooted in the love of Christ”
(TCDSB Mission Statement). Thus, it is important that parents as the first teachers build a faith-filled home; the church will strengthen and celebrate it; while our Catholic schools will nurture and sustain it.
Catholic Schools are vital and privileged places where students critically engage in a dialogue between faith and culture, not only during Religious Education lessons, but in all curriculum and events of the day.
Through the Religion and Family Life Programs, students will deepen their understanding of the Catholic traditions, roles of Christian service, vocations, and responsible participation in the political and social spheres of community life.
It is with this knowledge that students of Catholic Schools learn to live virtuous lives of service to the poor and vulnerable in their communities and abroad, mirroring the life of service of Jesus Christ.
