For fifty days, the people of God reflect on the meaning of Jesus' resurrection and of their sharing in it through baptism: dying to sin and living for God. For seven weeks we celebrate the presence of Jesus among us. We celebrate his ascension and pray to him, seated in glory with the Father. As we prepare for Pentecost, we ask him to fill us with the grace and power of his Spirit. In the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, students and staff celebrate the Easter season by engaging in a variety of activities from Easter Sunday until Pentecost, which includes the board-wide celebration of the annual Catholic Education Week Mass.
