The CCSTA  2019 Convention - Faith Moving Mountains
May 30th - June 1st



Welcome to the CCSTA 2019 Convention – Faith Moving Mountains. The theme of this year’s conference, is inspired by Pope Francis’ Encyclical on the Environment – Laudato Si. This encyclical on climate and justice calls us to be stewards of our faith, our community, and our world. Within the global context of wellbeing, Pope Francis reminds us that God’s loving plan, every creature has its own value and significance.

How blessed we are to have our convention in the beautiful setting of Canmore, nestled along the banks of the Bow River, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. The awesomeness of our God is palpable and compels us to unite in meaningful collaboration to serve Catholic education within the splendor of God’s kingdom.

The Our Lady of the Rockies parish, along with two Catholic schools, Christ the Redeemer Catholic Schools (Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Academy) and Conseil scolaire FrancoSud
(École Notre-Dames-des-Monts), serve the Catholic community of Canmore, and inspire each of us to continue fiercely advocating for the preservation of publicly funded Catholic education.

Our speakers, highly committed and distinguished faith leaders, not only support this mission, they are experts in their respective areas bringing incredible experience, insight, and knowledge.

May the opening line of Laudato Si, “Praise be to you, my Lord” be forever on our lips and steep deeply in our heart as the Holy Spirit strengthens us to move mountains – with our faith.
