ECSE: Environmental, Cultural, and Spiritual Education
Peace be with God the Creator, Peace be with all of Creation.
In 1990, Pope John Paul IIissued his World Day of Peace Message, Peace with God - Peace with all of Creation, in which the Holy Father announced, "There is a growing awareness that world peace is threatened not only by the arms race, regional conflicts, and continuedinjustice among peoples and nations, but also by a lack of due respect for nature... Moreover, a new ecological awareness is beginning to emerge which, rather than being downplayed, ought to be encouraged to develop into concrete programs and initiatives."
EcoJustice’s foundations are based on St. Francis of Assisi’s beliefs of simplicity, poverty and his reliance on God's providence rather than worldly goods. Amidst a sense of time, urgency and global awareness our program, through real life connections with the community and environment will develop students intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually while also enhancing their self-esteem and citizenship skills as Canadians and Catholics.
EcoJustice is a grade 8 experiential and inquiry-based outdoor education program that presents integrated, thematic units through an ecological and social justice lens.
We strive to increase environmental awareness and social justice, improve school environment, increase involvement in the local community, promote pupil empowerment, and develop a spiritual connection with the diverse landscape of Saskatchewan’s land and culture, and moreover the world.
