On November 3, we celebrate Catholic Education Sunday across the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary. It is a day to recognize the gift of Catholic education that is ours to cherish and support, so that it remains vital for today’s students who will become tomorrow’s community leaders.
Our schools are an expression of our faith and a gift to future generations. Catholic education is the permeation of God in everything we do. On the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd, a special collection will occur at each mass. The community is called to support Catholic education in our community and to ensure the present and future needs of our students. The Alberta Bishops’ acknowledge with deep gratitude and embrace with unwavering resolve publicly funded Catholic education. Let us join together in thanking God for the gift of Catholic Education in Alberta. The Novena is intended to be prayed in our classrooms, parishes and homes from Oct. 25 until Catholic Education Sunday on Nov. 2.
