The letter uses the scriptural account of the Road to Emmaus as a basis for
reflection on the mission and vision of Catholic education.

In his video first launched for Catholic Education Week 2018, Bishop Crosby is encouraging the faithful of the Diocese of Hamilton to take a closer look at Renewing the Promise over the coming year so that, together, we may preserve and enhance the legacy of publicly funded Catholic Education in this province.

Pastoral Letter

In light of the pastoral letter of the Bishops of Ontario, Bishop Crosby invites you to consider your role in renewing the promise.


The Insitute for Catholic Education (ICE) has a number of resources available, including a discussion guide, personal reflection, a placemat, and PowerPoint Presentation.
