  OECTA Pledge

I pledge to work for the goal of Christian education which is to co-operate with Divine Grace in forming the true and perfect Christian.

I promise to obey the rules and regulations of The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association and to fulfill my duties as a member.


OECTA Prayer

Creator God, we praise you, the source of all life. Renew our faith and guide us in our ministry as Catholic teachers. Let us touch the hearts and minds of those with whom we work.

Lord Jesus, share with us your counsel, so we may choose knowledge over ignorance, wisdom over waste, peace over injustice, community over isolation and service over domination.

Holy Spirit, nurture our growth. Inspire us to give birth to the creative powers within us. Let us come to the fullness of life promised in the Gospel. Amen.
