Holy Week

Hello Grade One Families!

Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of the most holy week of our Church year. When Father George came to visit the Grade One class on Thursday, he spoke to the children about how their actions this week will help to make it a truly holy week in preparation for Easter. He reminded them that through good works such as kindness, listening, helping, praying and attending Mass, they can show their own holiness as we make this final journey together to the Easter Triduum.

As we are coming to the end of the season of Lent, please return your child’s Mite Box by Wednesday. Please print your child’s name somewhere on the box so that they can personally present it at our service on Thursday morning. If your child’s Mite box has gone missing, please send your donation for the seminarians in a white envelope labelled with your child’s name. Thank-you!
