Celebrate, preserve, promote and enhance Catholic education.
The Alberta Catholic School Trustees’ Association (ACSTA) is encouraged by the Alberta government’s recent display of leadership in placing the third reading of Bill 10 on hold. However, at the same time, we are deeply saddened by the distorted information, aimed at our Catholic schools and our faith, that seems to be taking over this debate.
As school trustees and members of the Catholic faith, we need to make it abundantly clear to those outside our community that in our Catholic faith, and therefore our Catholic schools, we believe that all people are loved and accepted as children of God and as a child of God, each person is to be accepted with dignity and respect.
We are proud of our Alberta Catholic schools and our tradition in providing inclusive, welcoming, safe and respectful learning environments for all students regardless of ethnic backgrounds, abilities, social status or sexual orientation. Our schools work hard to promote understanding and respect for the sanctity of human life and the human person. Our students, in turn, demonstrate respect for the unique differences of every person, thereby extending understanding and compassion to others.
By making our voices heard, I know that we can ensure and maintain safe and caring Catholic school environments for all Alberta students. As a Catholic community, we can demonstrate to our most vulnerable in society that their respective needs are just as important as any one group.
