Catholic Education Week 2024

Each year, the Catholic School Divisions in Saskatchewan engage in a week-long celebration of the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week. This year’s celebration is entitled, “We are called to love”The theme was inspired by joyful anticipation of the 2025 Jubilee Year’s theme “Pilgrims of Hope”.  With open hearts of love, we prepare ourselves for this celebration with the reminder that we are all called to love God and each other.

There are five sub-themes, one for each day of Catholic Education Week. The subtheme for today is “We are called to love … as people of Hope". To truly live with joy in this world, we need the theological virtue of hope. Hope is rooted deeply in our faith as it is a relationship of trust in God. As we gather as a faith community in prayer, let us reflect on how our actions and words reflect who we are as people of hope.  

Gracious God of all creation,

As we journey with hope,

may we always be mindful of how You sent your Son

to be a beacon of goodness and light in the world.

Give us eyes of hope

to see the good in everything and everyone around us.

Give us the grace and strength

to be beacons of hope and light for others.

May Your virtue of hope guide our decisions

for the service of all Your people.

We ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son,

who lived and showed us your way.
