Dear Parents and Guardians:
This is to inform you that on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, all staff members will be involved in a district-wide Faith Development Day at the Shaw Conference Centre. There will be no instruction of students at school on that day. Faith Development Day is an outstanding opportunity for the staff of Edmonton Catholic Schools to come together to articulate and celebrate our faith.Life of Grace:
Journey of Joy. We are pleased to welcome Steve Angrisano as our guest speaker.
Catholic education is an awesome vocation and responsibility. By being involved in the education mission of the church, Catholic schools provide a hopeful response to the great mysteries of life in an increasingly complex world. Faith Development Day provides us, as a community of faith, with the opportunity to become more deeply aware of the faith foundation of our lives and to find inspiration to enter into our life’s work with deeper conviction.
I am confident that you will agree that such a day is critical to realizing our mission: “to provide a Catholic education that inspires students to learn and that prepares them to live fully to serve God in one another.” (ECS Mission Statement)
For more information, please feel free to contact your child’s school.
Peace and blessings,
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
