Launch of New Pastoral Plan


TCDSB celebrated the launch of our new three-year pastoral plan on May 9, 2018. Students, staff, parents and trustees, gathered with pastors and other representatives from our parishes, representatives from employee federations, Catholic partners and community leaders for the gala celebration. The day began with a focus on the Year of the School, the third year of our current pastoral plan “Together With One Voice: Harmonizing our Faith through Family, Parish and School”. The Spotlight on Your School showcase highlighted videos created by students and staff to celebrate the unique nature of their local school communities. The afternoon saw the unveiling of our new pastoral plan for 2018-2021, “Rooted in Christ: we Belong, we Believe, we Become”. His Eminence Cardinal Thomas Collins provided the reflection for the afternoon, sharing his vision of what Belonging, Believing and Becoming are in connection with our Catholic faith. 

Rooted in Christ: we Belong, we Believe, we Become

We thank the many students, staff, parishes, employee federations, trustees and other Catholic leaders who participated in last week’s launch of the Board’s new pastoral plan. It was truly wonderful to celebrate this launch during Catholic Education Week as we focused on renewing the promise of Catholic education. We were honoured to have His Eminence Cardinal Thomas Collins as our keynote speaker to offer some insights into the theme for our new plan-- “Rooted in Christ: we Belong, we Believe, we Become”.
Inspired by St. Paul’s Letter to the Colossians (“Live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith…abounding in thanksgiving”), our new pastoral plan strengthens our sense of belonging to God and one another, expresses our belief in God through our vision and mission, and works to achieve our goals as people on a common mission.
