Catholic Education Week

May 5-10, 2019

During the week of May 5-10, 2019 the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board will celebrate the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to the community, the province and to Canada. Our Catholic Graduate Expectations challenge students to articulate in society those fundamental values that underpin Catholic Education.

This year, during Catholic Education Week, a Board wide Mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Belleville. 

The province wide theme of this year, "Living as Joyful Disciples" reminds us that our Catholic schools exist to help students form and grow as disciples of Christ. 

The five sub-themes for Catholic Education week are:

Rooted In Prayer, Living in Community, Doing Justice & Creating Hope, Journeying Together in Faith and Sharing the Good News. 


During Catholic Education Week ALCDSB recognizes the exemplary accomplishments of students, staff and community partners who consistently demonstrate outstanding service.

Nominations are now closed. 

Recipients will receive awards at the luncheon celebration after Mass on May 7, 2019.

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
