The Catholic Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories have prepared a joint letter, available in English and French, in celebration of Catholic Education Sunday on Nov. 5th. The bishops reflect on the importance of Catholic education and the theme for this year’s Catholic Education Sunday, “Courage to Lead”.

Publicly funded Catholic education in Alberta is a unique and cherished historical gift, for which we are grateful. It is an invaluable offering to both the Catholic community and wider society, carrying growing responsibility in an increasingly secular world. In the face of many societal changes and challenges, we share the H responsibility of ensuring that our faith-based education remains steadfast in its fidelity to the teachings of the Church. We are all called to lead with courage, secure in God’s love,” the letter reads.
