Catholic Schools throughout Saskatchewan will celebrate Catholic Education Week and the significant contribution of Catholic Education in our province during Catholic Education Week May 9-16.

The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is “Catholic Education: Nurturing Hope/L’éducation catholique: Cultiver l’espérance”.

This is a special week in our schools as we celebrate the joy and hope of Catholic Education.

There are five sub-themes, one for each day of Catholic Education Week, aimed at helping staff and students to reflect more fully on what Nurturing Hope means to them. The five sub-themes are:

  • Day 1: Preparing the Earth /  Préparer la terre
  • Day 2: Sowing Seeds of Gratitude /  Semer la gratitude
  • Day 3: Cultivating Relationships /  Cultiver nos relations
  • Day 4: Harvesting New Fruit /  Récolter de nouveaux fruits
  • Day 5: Marvelling in Wonder /  S’émerveiller

Catholic Education Week is marked by special activities such as prayer celebrations and service activities.

On Ascension Thursday, May 13, 2021, which is World Catholic Education Day, a live-stream liturgy with Bishop Mark Hagemoen will begin at 10:00 a.m. for all the faithful of Saskatchewan posted at and on the diocesan YouTube channel: LINK
