What a great way to get to the close of our school year. A big thank you to our Gr. 7 students and staff for preparing Fun Day. I just love being able to do these things with the community.
This weekend is the Feast of Corpus Christi, also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. What an wonderful gift it was to witness our Gr. 2 students receiving their First Holy Communion last Sunday. My favourite sight is always watching their faces as they walk back to their pews after receiving the body of Christ. Their faces are full of joy and awe.
Last night was the final night of our Confirmation masses. Please continue to pray for our Gr. 7’s as they move on to high school with the grace of the Holy Spirit!
A big thank you to Father Paul, Father Matthew, Mrs. Wagg, Ms. Molina, Mrs. Zochowski, Mrs. Steele, all the liturgical choirs/singers, altar servers, ushers and Mr. Goldberg for ALL their help in making these celebrations happen. It truly takes our faith community to create such wonderful moments.
On Sunday, we also celebrate all the fathers in our community! Happy Father’s Day! May God continue to bless you in your vocation as a parent and help you in guiding and shaping these amazing children.
Yours In Christ,
Mrs. Maria Fonseca

I want to take a moment to thank a few groups who have helped out immensely this year with their support and time.
Thank you to our P.E.C. members. They dedicate their time to supporting the parish and school and lend their leadership. We have two outgoing members who will be missed: Mr. Goldberg & Mrs. McShane.
Thank you to all our volunteers who have helped with supervision, hot lunches, library, maintenance and clean up. You are the behind the scenes superheroes!
Thank you to our fundraising team who have had to think outside the box to ensure that we have funds to use on the students. Their efforts are much appreciated.
Thank you to our P.S.G. who bring in exciting activities and help fund special items for our students. The P.S.G. also has two outgoing members who will be missed: Mrs. Tuck & Mrs. Feschuk.
Step Up Day
On June 24 from 9:15 – 10:15am our students will be “stepping up” to the next grade to meet their teacher and to get a taste of what it will be like in September.
We also invite new families who will be in Gr.’s 1 – 7 in September to bring in their children at this time.
Incoming Kindergarten students will NOT be participating in Step Up Day.
St. Vincent de Paul Donations
A big thank you from the St. Luke’s St. Vincent de Paul organization for all your donations all year. Each food bank Mass has helped to fill their pantries. If you would like to donate over the summer, please contact St. Luke’s Parish. We will resume our collection with our Mass in September.
Last Day Reminders
Last Day of school is on June 28.
We will have Mass at 9:15am, followed by coffee and treats for parents at Holy Grounds. The students will return to class after Mass to gather report cards and will be dismissed at 10:30 am.
