One Family, One Hope in Christ

Daily Health Check

Friday, June 24th 2022

Dear Families,

Here we are, the final few days of school! I cannot express enough gratitude for all your support and patience this year. We look forward to more in person events and getting to know all the families in the new year.

Next week, a final newsletter with September reminders will be sent out. Please pin that email for easy reference.

Loving and merciful God, you have commissioned your angels to guide and protect us. Command them to be with us from our leaving until our return; keep us safe from all injury, accident or malice and sin. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord,

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Maria Fonseca

The C.I.S.V.A. theme for 2022-2023 is Seeking Truth, Healing and Reconciliation.

Symbols are visual poetry. It is common to discern deeper meaning from an image the longer one views it. Our theme visual for 2022-2023 has many meanings.

The dove, a symbol of peace, represents the Holy Spirit. It can also remind us of the dove from Noah’s ark that went seeking safety, refuge, and a place for a new beginning. The Holy Spirit reveals all truth.

The cedar branch is a symbol of healing for Indigenous Peoples.

The circle, represents God, who has no beginning and no end.

The colours used can represent feelings and emotions: white is often considered a symbol of purity or joy, red, the colour we use at Pentecost and for the Holy Spirit, symbolizes love, green for new life and growth, and pink, another colour for joy that is used (at Gaudete and Laetare Sunday) for the third candle of the Advent wreath.

True reconciliation is realized when we are open to the truth and to healing.

Let us invoke the Holy Spirit as we seek reconciliation with our Indigenous brothers and sisters.
