Our annual Catholic Education Week Mass was held on Tuesday, May 2nd, hosted at the Notre Dame Cathedral in downtown Ottawa. The Ottawa Catholic School Board Chamber Choir performed and Monsignor Daniel Berniquez presided over the Celebration of the Eucharist. Following the Mass was the presentation of the Director of Education Commendation Awards, presented to outstanding role models in the Ottawa Catholic School Board.
Congratulations and thank you to all of these employees who demonstrate devotion and service in Catholic Education. See pictures of all 35 award recipients in our Facebook album!
“Most of our recipients do not feel deserving of the recognition. They are just doing their jobs like anybody else. But their colleagues do not agree with this analysis of their contributions. They see true leaders. People who walk the talk, role up their sleeves, and pitch in to make their school communities better.”Elaine McMahon
