Covid-19 Updates

At our very foundation, Vancouver College is a faith and learning community. While news, guidelines, and announcements may shake us, they will not change who we are.

Our top priority at the school is to ensure the health and well-being of our community. For this reason, we are asking everyone to follow the advice of medical experts, to adhere to physical distancing recommendations, and to stay home as much as possible.

May God bless you and keep you safe during these uncertain times.

Mr Johnny Bevacqua, Principal

KEEPING THE FAITH ALIVE

During challenging times, focusing on our faith is more important than ever.  In his March 27, 2020 Urbi et Orbi Homily, Pope Francis   advised Catholics to "Embrace the Lord in order to embrace hope: that is the strength of faith, which frees us from fear and gives us hope."

Our Campus Ministry team   is offering the following resources to help students, families, and staff  with their faith formation during these challenging times.

2019-2020 School Year Recap

THE CLASS OF 2020

At the beginning of the school year, we planned to hold our annual Grad Dinner Dance on Friday, May 15, 2020   to celebrate our Grade 12 students and their accomplishments. With COVID-19 delaying those plans for now,   we dedicated   Friday, May 15, 2020 to our graduates, and have a few special surprises for them throughout the day! 

Our celebrations from the day have been collected on  our    Grad Dinner Dance webpage to share with our community! 

From June 16-18, 2020 we held a modified in-person graduation ceremony on O'Hagan Plaza, allowing each of our graduating student   to receive his High School Diploma on stage with the school’s Administrators, family members, and friends. Each session was filmed and complied into our official Commencement Video, released on June 24, 2020 after our community gathered virtually for our traditional  Graduation Liturgy.
