Support Our Next Century

Prayer

TODAY'S PRAYER is by Aiden L and Kolby M.

As a faith and learning community, we begin our day in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Lord, we praise and thank you for the gift of this day and the night’s rest.

Lord, guide us through the school year and help us achieve above and beyond our expectations.

Father, on this feast day of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, we see the example of someone who was very privileged and yet spent her life helping the marginalized: help us to take action to help those in need of solace or a home instead of ignoring them, especially refugees and victims of terror attacks.

As well, give us the strength to endure any hardships, because life is full of them, and mulling over our problems will only make the experience more painful.

We also pray today for the swim team and Mrs. Rapier. May they swim well and help Mrs. Rapier in her role of coordinator of the Provincial Swim Meet.

Be with us Lord throughout this day in our teaching, learning and all our activities.

May everything we do and say be guided by Gospel Values, by the way Jesus would want us to treat one another as we are Called to Collaborate and share responsibility in our mission

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Blessed Edmund Rice...pray for us.

Live Jesus in our Hearts...Forever.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Allergen Awareness

As we progress through the school year, this letter is a reminder to all that we have students who, when exposed to certain allergens (such as nuts, fish, or eggs) may experience anaphylactic shock. Anaphylaxis is defined as a sudden and severe allergic reaction which requires immediate treatment to prevent death from suffocation or cardiac arrest.
