Theme of Mercy Launches Catholic Education Week in Ontario

TORONTO, April 28, 2016 /CNW/ - Catholic Education Week happens May 1-6, 2016 at Ontario's Catholic schools, their parishes and surrounding communities. This year's theme for Catholic Education Week takes its inspiration from the "Year of Mercy" that was announced by Pope Francis as "a time of grace, peace, conversion and joy." During the week, Catholic schools in Ontario will be highlighting the many ways Ontarians open doors of mercy each day for one another. A special short video has been created to share these highlights with communities across the province. The video can be viewed here:

Each day of Catholic Education Week is marked by special activities at all grade levels and includes prayer celebrations and service activities. For a partial list of activities happening at Catholic school boards across the province visit the Catholic Education Week Activities page.

The hashtag for Catholic Education Week is #CEW2016.

The Ontario Catholic School Trustees' Association is the provincial voice for Catholic education. Founded in 1930, OCSTA represents Catholic school boards that collectively educate approximately 550,000 students in Ontario, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.
