Join Us in Celebrating 85 Years of Advocacy with OAPCE
This 2024, we at the Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education (OAPCE) are excited to celebrate a significant milestone – our 85th anniversary. As highlighted in a recent article by John Wilson in the Catholic Register, our journey since 1939 has been one of passionate advocacy and unwavering support for the rights of Catholic education in Ontario.
Our upcoming conference, scheduled for April 12-13 at Toronto’s Msgr. Percy Johnson Catholic Secondary School, is more than just a celebration. It’s a pivotal event that honors our past achievements while looking forward to the future of Catholic education in our province. This gathering is a testament to our commitment to uniting parents, educators, and students in our shared goal of enhancing and preserving Catholic education.
As Joe Perri and Annalisa Crudo-Perri, our co-executive directors, emphasize, the conference is a crucial platform for bringing together parents from across Ontario. It’s an opportunity to collectively celebrate our achievements and to reinforce our commitment to Catholic education.
Our role extends beyond this event. We are dedicated to helping parents navigate the complexities of educational policies and advocating for the broader success of Catholic education in Ontario. We maintain a significant presence in key Ministry of Education initiatives, ensuring that the voice of Catholic education is heard.
As we look to the future, our focus is on increasing direct engagement with parents. We understand the importance of personal connections and are eager to meet parents one-on-one, strengthening our community.
