Catholic Education Sunday

A Horizon of Hope logoToday we celebrate Catholic Education Sunday in Alberta.  We are very blessed to have Catholic Education.  Currently, Alberta is one of only three provinces that still has fully funded Catholic Education (Saskatchewan and Ontario are the other two provinces.  This year the theme of Catholic Education Sunday is ‘Our Schools as Islands of Mercy’.  Here is excerpt from the letter from the Bishops of Alberta and NWT:

  • Pope Francis describes the mercy of God as his loving concern for each of us.  “He desires our well-being and he wants to see us happy, full of joy, and peaceful.  This is the path which the merciful love of Christians must also travel.  As the Father loves, so do his children.  Just as he is merciful, so we are called to be merciful to each other.” (MV 9)

Pope Francis reminds us of our call to be merciful.  “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”  (Matthew 5:7).  Let us work together in the spirit of Catholic Education to make Our Lady of the Assumption School an ‘Island of Mercy’ for all members of our learning community.

Respectfully yours,

Greg Kostiuk
