GrACE Message

It is a blessing that in our schools our children have an opportunity to learn more about our faith, especially during seasons like Advent, when preparing for Christmas festivities can easily distract us from the reason for the season. In Alberta, our Catholic schools have been able to assist families in educating their children for over 158 years! A Catholic education is about more than having Religious Education as a part of a child’s academic study. When a child attends a Catholic school, they are guided to discover God’s goodness in every subject, every activity, and every person they encounter. This widespread permeation of faith enables us to acknowledge the almighty power and goodness of God and inspires in us a desire to be a reflection of God’s love in our world today.
