On October 23rd – at schools and administrative sites across the Region – the staff and Trustees of Waterloo Region’s Catholic schools officially launched WCDSB’s year of “Faith in Action”.

This marks the beginning of the third and final year of the Board’s 2016-18 Pastoral Plan. In 2016, the focus in our schools was centred on what it means to be #PeopleOfLove. In 2017, the focus shifted to being #PeopleOfHope. This year, the focus is on being PeopleOfFaith.

As a culminating activity, a special cross will make a pilgrimage from school to school between now and next November. The journey started at the Centre in the Square in Kitchener during special Eucharistic celebrations presided over by the Most Rev. Bishop Douglas Crosby and the Very Rev. Con O’Mahony. The first stop on the special journey is St. Brigid CES in Ayr, after which the cross will travel through the Monsignor Doyle CSS family of schools, and then across the rest of Waterloo Region.

Throughout the duration of the pilgrimage, each WCDSB school will be featured on the board’s website, demonstrating in their own unique ways how People of Love and People of Hope, working together in community, create Faith in Action.
