“The world needs Christians who know how to demonstrate the beauty of the Gospel by the way they live; who are weavers of dialogue, models of fraternal life; who bring the sweet fragrance of hospitality and solidarity, who protect and safeguard life.”

-Pope Francis

Remembrance Day
On Wednesday, November 10th, the students joined together for a virtual assembly to honour the men and women who sacrificed their lives so that we may have peace. I’d like to thank Ms. Boots and Mrs. Ladouceur for preparing the Grades 2 and 6 who filmed beautiful songs as well as the choir who were under their direction and brought tears to our eyes.
