We celebrate Catholic Education Week from May 2 to May 6. The theme this year is Opening the Doors of Mercy. There are five sub themes that help the students understand the rich meaning of this year's theme: MERCY that WELCOMES; MERCY that LOVES; MERCY that FORGIVES; MERCY that LIVES THE GOSPEL; and MERCY that REJOICES. Each day we share a gospel reading and a saint's story to show students yet another face of mercy.
We welcome you to our opening Liturgy on Monday, May 2 at 10:00. Our Grade 1 students have prepared a wonderful celebration of Mercy to begin our week. We will also be presenting Ms Carmel Horan with a cheque for the OK Clean Water Project from our Lenten social justice fundraising.
Our Open House is Wednesday, May 4th from 7:30 am to 8:45. It's a great time to come together as a community. This year we have a special French Cafe where students will be sharing their compositions and singing. Our dance team and choirs will be performing from 8:30 to 8:45 in the gymnasium. As last year, we ask you to lug a mug and bring a baked good (no nuts please). We'll have coffee and juice available at tables around the school.
Our school dance is Friday, May 6th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We have awesome DJs joining us who'll make the evening a blast. The dance is a School Council event and the dance committee would appreciate volunteers to help with supervision.
