World Catholic Education Day (May 25, 2017)

That you may know Him better

Every year, 40 days after Easter on Ascension Thursday, Catholics across the globe give thanks for the gift that is Catholic education through the celebration of World Catholic Education Day.

This year World Catholic Education Day is on May 25, 2017.

Catholic education has served nations for centuries through teaching students in their faith. Throughout Canada, provinces, territories and dioceses dedicate special days or weeks to celebrate Catholic education. In keeping with these celebrations, World Catholic Education Day is a time for Catholics around the world to take a moment to pause, reflect and pray on the gift that is Catholic education.

All our schools celebrate this very special day. For a list of World Catholic Education Day school events, please check out our Faith Event Calendar.
