Support Our Next Century

Morning Prayer

Today's Prayer is by Isiah Flores and Tim Wong

As a faith and learning community we begin our day,

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

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

We thank you God once again for blessing us with the gift of this beautiful day. We pray that you may be along our side during this restful spring break. May we be guided to a safe and healthy return next term.

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

May everything we do and say today 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. Amen.

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.

Grade 4 First Nations Art

The Grade fours have been busy this past week learning about First Nations culture in an engaging way. Their first project was creating a traditional First Nations dwelling in-class. Next, they had an art lesson with Ms. Point on Northwest Animals and Formline art.

What an incredible experience for our boys who created some pretty amazing pieces!
