Celtics Chatter, Friday February 1, 2023

We are celebrating Catholic Schools Week next week!

We are so blessed to learn, play and pray in a community where we can share in our Faith and our love for God.

Monday: Pastor & Staff Appreciation – Let us thank the hardworking efforts of our pastor, Father Matthew and our teachers and staff!

There will be a giant poster outside the gym. Feel free to write some messages of appreciation for the staff this week.

Tuesday: Parishioner Appreciation – Without the support of our parish, we would not be able to do the work we do. Stop by the Holy Grounds for treats from the school!

Wednesday: Family Appreciation – We are grateful for the continued support from our families for entrusting us with the care of their children.

JUST A REMINDER SCHOOL IS CLOSED FEB. 16th & 17th for the Catholic Educators Conference and FEB. 20 for Family Day.

Safe Haven Sunday – Feb. 12th

Safe Haven Sunday is a weekend set aside by the Archdiocese of Vancouver and parishes to directly address the harms of sexualized content and pornography in an appropriate way. Within the context of the Mass, parishes are able to provide teaching and resources that will support and protect individuals, marriages and families in making all homes a safe haven.

Yesterday your eldest child brought home the resource, Confident: Helping Parents Navigate Online Exposure. Itis a step-by-step conversation guide that includes:

  • Information about the prevalence of pornography use today
  • A four-step process for discussing pornography with a child or teen
  • Scripts for conversing with a child about pornography in the light of biblical sexuality
  • Information about porn use versus porn addiction
  • A plan for protecting your home and devices
