May Spring Break bring you time to slow down, relax and refocus.
When we get back it will be a very busy few months until June!
Please return report card covers by Wednesday, March 29th.
Prayer for The Third Week of Lent
Forgive us, dear Jesus, for times we have not looked to you as our Lord and for allowing the clamoring distractions of the world to become higher priorities than you.
Forgive us for yielding more to the temptations of this world than being transformed by your mercy and peace.
May the Holy Spirit empower us to accept the grace that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, offers to us today.
Hear the words of our Lord, “Your sins are forgiven, go and sin no more.”
Let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts since, as members of one body, we were called to peace. And let us be thankful.
Pancake Breakfast- March 12

Happy birthday to our March celebrants!

Holy Thursday – April 6th
Our Gr. 7 Class will be doing a Passion play. Each class will be invited to follow the student, cast as Jesus, through the play from Agony in the Garden to Crucifixion. The teachers will talk to their class about how the students are “just acting”, but we will be showing Jesus receiving the crown of thorns and other stations of the cross. All scenes will be done with the utmost reverence.
Parents are invited to come and walk the Passion play at 11:15. It will done outdoors.
A huge congratulations to our Gr 7 teams who represented our school at the CISVA Finals!
Our boys received silver and our girls took home the bronze! Way to go Celtics!
Thank you to the coaches Mrs. Murphy, Mr. Geary and Mr. Smith.
