Publicly funded Catholic Education in Calgary has been an integral part of our Alberta history for over 130 years and is rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Calgary Catholic Education Foundation supports the largest Catholic school district in the province with 117 schools and 57,000 students in the Calgary Catholic School District.
Our community of faith is blessed with many gifts. Two of the most vibrant ones are our greater community support of Catholic Education and our rich tradition of Catholic Social Teaching. Together, they teach our students and future community leaders to look beyond their individuality and how they can impact their local community. A grant of up to $6,000 per project is funded in this stream and one grant is bestowed in Bishop Emeritus Henry’s name.
