STAR Catholic Celebrating Catholic Education Sunday


We are People of the Way ...

Every November in Alberta we celebrate Catholic Education Sunday. It is an opportunity for all of us to rejoice and give thanks for the spectacular gift we have in our vibrant and faith-based schools.

Enjoying an outstanding reputation as one of the leading school divisions in the province, we are filled with gratitude for all of our many blessings. STAR Catholic Schools consistently delivers high academic results and high levels of stakeholder satisfaction in safe and caring environments that are permeated by the radiant love of our Risen Lord.

The early Christians were referred to simply as the “People of the Way,” with “the Way” being the person of Jesus. These early Christians are our ancestors in the faith, and we carry on their journey today. As a school division we are excited to be embarking on the first year of a three-year faith theme titled: Learn the Way, Love the Way, Live the Way. This theme calls to mind the Christ-centered identity that grounds us as a community of disciples.

On behalf of the entire school division, it is my pleasure, as Superintendent of STAR Catholic Schools, to wish everyone a very happy and holy Catholic Education Sunday. May God continue to abundantly bless us all!

Dr. Troy Davies
