2021-22 Board Spiritual Theme

“Behold, I make all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)

This year, our Pastoral Theme is entitled, Catholic Education: Rebuild, Restore, Renew Together. Our focus is aligned with the OCSTA Catholic Education Week Theme. At BHNCDSB, we are a dedicated, faith-filled, Catholic education community who are stronger together. There are five key sub-themes we will explore throughout the year.

Rediscover. “I have found the coin that I lost.” Lk.15:9b

Rebuild. “Rebuild the house of the Lord.” Ez. 1:3

Restore. “The God of all grace will restore, support, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Pt. 5:10.

Renew. “The Lord your God…. Will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love.”

Rejoice. “Be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things.” Joel 2:21

Prayer for Theme

God of grace,
help us to rediscover how to be side by side
in rebuilding our communities of faith and learning.
Help us restore harmony and balance in our relationships,
and renew our desire to approach challenges confidently and with peaceful hearts.
May we always rejoice in recognizing the blessings our lives hold.

Amen

This year, we will continue to support the faith formation of staff and students by emphasizing the importance of building an interior prayer life, using Scripture to deepen our understanding of rebuilding, restoring, renewing as found in the Gospel narratives, and reaching out to our neighbours in need. Resources and training dedicated to improving our ability to be Catechists and strengthening home, school and parish relationships will be a focus.
