Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB Celebrates Respect for Life Week

May 10 - 16, 2020 


The policies and practices of the Toronto Catholic District School Board, affirm the sacred character of human life. Respect for Life week is an annual opportunity to celebrate this.
We are called to be creative and supportive of life. Respect for life means that all human beings have value and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect from the eldest to the youngest; from those who are strong and healthy to those who are vulnerable because of illness or disabilities; and from those who can speak for themselves to those who cannot.
As a Catholic community, every week is Respect for Life Week as we work together to nurture and empower our students and one another to stand up for those who are most vulnerable: the unborn, the elderly, the sick, those with mental health issues, those who suffer poverty, injustice, violence, abuse and who are marginalized in other ways. All life is sacred, and we are called to serve and to love one another.


Tips for Respect for Life Week

  • Focus on issues of social justice
  • Talk to your local parish and see if the pastor, or someone from the parish could visit and speak to students about respect for life issues
  • Visit the elderly
  • Participate in activities that support the poor, homeless, the marginalized
