Catholic Schools' Week - January 31 to February 6, 2021
On January 31st, we begin observance of Catholic Schools’ Week across the province of British Columbia. This year's theme is Walk With Jesus Our Living Hope and together, with over 22,000 students enrolled in 79 Catholic schools throughout the province, we celebrate the ways Catholic schools create environments where our Catholic story is shared and celebrated.
The Nelson Diocese currently enrolls 1162 students in 7 schools located in Penticton, West Kelowna, Kelowna, Trail, Nelson, and Cranbrook. During this special week student learning will be highlighted, our many accomplishments will be celebrated, and we will enjoy gathering to honor all those staff members, parents, Council and Parent Group members, and pastors, who have contributed to our schools’ level of excellence. These activities will indeed look somewhat different than in past years due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Our sincere thanks are extended to the many parishioners throughout the diocese for their ongoing support of Catholic Education through volunteer activities, donations, financial assistance. We continue to ask for your prayers for our schools, our parishes, and our Diocese. Click on Schools to learn more about each community we serve and find links to each school website.
