On October 24, 2022, all Superior North Catholic District School Board staff gathered for our annual Faith Development Day. It was an opportunity for our team to reflect on and grow our practice as a community of educators and a chance to develop a plan to support and celebrate the Catholic faith, culture and education within our school communities.

The day was co-facilitated by Paul Tsekouras, Superintendent of Education and Ben Jewiss, Vice Principal of St. Hilary Catholic School and Catholicity and Special Projects Lead. Trustees, Senior Administration, Principals, System Support Team, Teachers, Early Childhood Educators, Educational Assistants, Administrative Assistants, Custodians, Cleaners and Catholic Education Centre Staff united at their sister schools to participate in liturgical celebration and professional reflection. The day was an opportunity to identify the strengths and successes of our Catholic Education program and system as well as the support needed to continue to support it.

During her opening remarks, Director of Education Maria Vasanelli, spoke to Pope Francis’ new instruction for Catholic Schools, focusing on the identity of Catholic schools and current challenges. Pope Francis says, "to educate is always an act of hope." Ms. Vasanelli asked staff to reflect on the role of Catholic education as an action of Jesus’ mission on earth. What does this mean, and how does it look in our Superior North Catholic schools?

Ms.Vasanelli thanked all Superior North Catholic District School Board staff for their contributions and day-to-day efforts to ensure authentic Catholic education for all and make a difference in the lives of our students.

Trustee Wawia, Chair of the Board, remarked that our schools are welcoming places for all. Catholicity is visible in our schools in all we do and is carried out in a spirit of cooperation between various parties – students, parents, teachers, non-teaching personnel and the school management – who form the educational community.
