Muskoka / Parry Sound Catholic Schools Trustee

Nurturing faith, illuminating minds, inspiring hearts, and empowering hands ~ we are working together to transform the world.

Our Board has eight trustees who represent the diverse Catholic school communities in Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka.

For the promise is for you, for your children, and for all who are far away, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to him.” 

Acts 2:39

Last week, trustees began the Board Meeting with a prayer that highlighted the theme and daily activities of Catholic Education Week, Renewing the Promise.  We are looking forward to the celebrations that will take place in Catholic schools across the province to commemorate the amazing gift of fully-funded Catholic education.  This year we are also awaiting a letter from the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario as they reflect on the future of Catholic Education in Ontario.

 

Once again this year the theme song is beautiful!  I hope that you will hear your children singing it throughout the week.  The chorus is:

Renew, renew the promise,

Renew, renew the flame;

Renew, renew the promise

To be light for the world

For the glory of God’s name.

 In April, trustees gathered for the Ontario Catholic School Trustee Association Conference and Annual General Meeting.  One of the highlights was a presentation by Craig Kielburger, who gave a wonderful presentation about the roots of Me to We, and how they are working to meet the vision of making doing good, doable. The work they do is such a good fit with our Board’s vision of nurturing faith, illuminating minds, inspiring hearts, and empowering hands ~ we are working together to transform our world.  I am so proud of everything that staff and students are doing to achieve that vision.

 

God Bless!
