Toronto Catholic District School Board




TCDSB Celebrates Parish Family Day

Capping off the Year of the Parish, and Catholic Education Week, the Toronto Catholic District School celebrated Parish Family Day on Friday, May 5th. This culminating celebration featured a Mass of celebration, and a showcase of student artwork, written work (poetry and stories), original music and video tributes that spoke to the special bonds that have developed between our school communities and their parishes, pastors, sisters and others in their parish community.

The event truly brought to life our pastoral plan--Together With One Voice--Family, Parish and School. Throughout the year, we have seen the collaboration among our schools and our parishes, and witnessed many examples of partnership, celebration, outreach and involvement.

TCDSB is truly blessed with the opportunity for all of us to learn and work in an environment where our Catholic faith can be celebrated each and every day in so many ways.
At the celebration, the Board formally acknowledged its parishes for their continued involvement and support of our Catholic school communities, as well as the Archdiocese of Toronto and the many religious orders who not only founded many of our schools, but who remain involved in Catholic education. Many priests, nuns and other parish representatives attended the event, along with staff and students from across the system, which saw the Boardroom filled to capacity.

The Board now looks forward to bringing together the Family, Parish and School as we launch the Year of the School starting September 2017, and we continue to build on the solid foundation that we have succeeded in creating together.


Let’s continue to celebrate the parish-school relationship!
