"Open Wide the Doors"

The Bishops of Alberta and the NWT have released a letter encouraging Catholic Schools to “open wide the doors” to Christ.

In their letter, issued In advance of Catholic Education Sunday on November 6, the bishops write:

Our beloved students need our schools to be bright with the light of Christ. We open the door to the Lord when the students follow a curriculum and activities fully permeated with the beauty of our faith; when teachers are authentic witnesses of the Christian life; when staff and administration strive diligently to ensure that our schools form a Gospel culture; and when trustees are guided by the teachings of the Lord and His Church and reflect their faith in the political arena. Schools that consciously open their doors to Christ are a priceless treasure. We must continue to support the valuable and vital role that our Catholic schools play in our Church and in our broader communities.
