Renewing the Promise

Renewing The PromiseExploring the Critical Role of Catholic Education in Contemporary Society

We want to hear from you about Catholic education in Ontario! “Renewing the Promise” is a dialogue.

Your input about Catholic education in Ontario – the way it fulfills its mandate as well as the challenges and opportunities of the present moment – will help to guide us for the future.
You can offer your ideas and input on-line through Thought Exchange. Log in to: to participate.

Thoughtexchange will provide background information and three open-ended questions that you answer anonymously. When the survey closes, responses will be sorted into themes. You will then be invited to look at emerging themes and prioritize them, locally and provincially.

Your ideas will provide important input for a gathering of the Catholic community later in the year on the theme of Renewing the Promise.

When the process is completed, results and analysis will be available on a designated public website. Catholic Education Week 2018 will be the occasion to celebrate all that we learned.
Join the dialogue!
