Catholic Education ~ Opening Doors of Mercy
Celebrate Catholic Education Week May 1 to 6
During the week of May 1 to May 6 we celebrate Catholic Education Week to recognize the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to the community, the province and to Canada.
This year's theme, "Opening Doors of Mercy", reflects Pope Francis' declaration of 2015/16 as a Jubilee Year of Mercy. The Jubilee Year of Mercy is a time for all Catholics to contemplate God's mercy, forgiveness and love for each one of us. As well, Pope Francis has opened the Vatican's Holy Door to evoke the concept of forgiveness which is the main focus of a Holy Year.
Catholic Education Week 2016 combines both the theme of mercy and the act of opening doors of reconciliation, mercy and forgiveness to all around us.
Each day this week we will focus on a sub-theme to help staff and students to reflect more fully on what Opening Doors of Mercy asks of them.

May's Virtue ~ Integrity
Integrity is following the example of Jesus, by standing firm for what we believe, even when it is hard. A person of integrity follows his or her conscience, making choices which are loving and life-giving.
Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
I praise You for showing me what is right and wrong
Through the examples and teachings of Jesus, and the Church.
Form my conscience in the truth,
So that I can make choices which are loving and good
Even when it is hard.
Give me courage to stand up for what I believe,
And work for justice in all circumstances.
Help me to walk in the Spirit of your Son,
Who always lived life with integrity.
