Another exciting school year is about to begin! Welcome back to our returning students, and a very special welcome to the new students to Niagara Catholic. Many are beginning school for the first time and look forward to 14 years of Catholic education, and others are joining at various points in your education. However you came to join us, we are pleased to have you join us as part of the Niagara Catholic family.
September is a busy month at Niagara Catholic, and we’re pleased to showcase a few of the events taking place in our system this month.
Our eight Niagara Catholic secondary schools will host Grade 9/new student Open Houses on September 2. If your son or daughter is a new student in one of our high schools, please visit their school’s website for the time of their event. Students in Grades 10-12 can visit the school on September 3 to make changes to their timetable.
September 8 is the first day of school! Once again, our classrooms will be bustling with activity and the happy sounds of students learning. We’re excited about the prospects for learning, spiritual development and fun that a new year brings and we’re certain it’s going to be a fantastic 10 months!

Niagara Catholic Director of Education John Crocco, Board Chair Father Paul MacNeil and Bishop Bergie will join students and staff from Niagara Catholic on a trip to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, September 23-25, for the World Meeting of Families, led by Pope Francis. This will be a very exciting and dynamic event and we are confident that it will be a life-changing experience for all those who take part. We are excited to be a party of this very historic event, the Holy Father’s first official visit to North America.
The Niagara Grape and Wine Festival is one of the area’s biggest events, and we are excited to be one of the biggest parts of this celebration. On September 26, come out and see Niagara Catholic family together as one big group, walking, playing music and entertaining thousands of people on the streets of downtown St. Catharines in the Grande Parade.
Check back in early October for our big events in what is always a busy month, including the 40th anniversary of the Notre Dame Pilgrimage!
