Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week is May 2 - 7, 2021.


“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.” (Isaiah 40:31)


The theme for Catholic Education Week 2021 is Nurturing Hope. The theme was inspired by the following considerations:

  • ​Recognition of the special Year of Laudato Si, which will run through May 24, 2021, announced by Pope Francis on May 24, 2020, the fifth anniversary of his papal encyclical, “On Caring for Our Common Home.”

  • In the face of the ongoing reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, a strong desire by the planning committee, along with those consulted, and supported by feedback from the survey, for continuity with the theme for Catholic Education Week 2020, Igniting Hope, which has served so well during the spring recess from in-school instruction.

  • The challenges to personal and spiritual well-being posed by the uncertainty and physical isolation of the current global crisis 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.

  • Ongoing recognition of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission and the relevance of Indigenous culture and spirituality to the spirit of Laudato Si.

At a time of national and local crisis, it became clear that there was a need to celebrate the hope of Catholic education, now and in the future.
