L’Association Franco-Ontarienne des conseils scolaires catholiques, the Niagara Catholic District School Board and Le Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir are waiting for you to join us in Niagara Falls from June 1st to the 3rd at the Marriott on the Falls for the annual CCSTA 2017 convention and AGM. Currently, the three partners are working very hard to offer you a remarkable convention and AGM, with an opportunity to tour this beautiful region.
Under the theme “Growing together in the vineyard of Christ”, the conference will take place in an enchanting world-renowned site beside the world famous falls, in the midst of internationally renowned vineyards and fabulous restaurants; where welcoming and friendly people are located.
One of our keynote speakers, His Eminence Cardinal Thomas Collins, will be speaking about the importance of the family, and how the school is called to support parents in teaching/raising of their children in Faith as Catholics engaged with the world while remaining faithful to their baptismal promise. And who knows – maybe he will be able to share some other discussions while he was in Rome with Pope Francis.
Many of the boards and associations from across Canada are prepared to share with you various topics such as inclusion, promotion of Catholic education, political advocacy and building lasting relationships within our communities and with First Nations, Métis and Inuit. Hot off the presses — you will not want to miss our discussion Friday afternoon about the Saskatchewan Theodore court case & judgement.
Another news flash – the CCSTA 2017 AGM is going GREEN. Yes that means that you will be sent an email with a link to the website where you will be able to download ALL the documents for the Saturday morning AGM meeting. So you can either print the booklet or save the file on your computer for easy access. So expect an email from the committee around Friday, May 25th.
Niagara, the place to greet you for CCSTA 2017. Join us to pray, learn and have fun. And this, all together in this beautiful family that is the Catholic Education and “Grow together in the vineyard of Christ”.
