We hope you and your families are well during this challenging time. We are all working together to adapt to these unprecedented conditions and we wanted to share some important information and resources.
First Holy Communion and Reconciliation: Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the current state of affairs within our province and country, First Confessions scheduled for April 18th and First Holy Communion scheduled for May 30th have been canceled for our Grade 2 students. We have been informed that students will receive these two sacraments in the 2020-2021 school year when they are in Grade 3. We realize that this is very disappointing news as we know that preparations have begun for our students and families to receive these sacraments and to celebrate this very special day. Please know that as we receive information, we will forward it along to you.
Daily Mass With Father Ross Campbell: As you know, public celebrations of the Mass are not taking place until further notice. However, now more than ever, it is so important to continue to practice and strengthen our faith. Please continue to pray together as a family and also practice meditation. You can also join Father Ross Campbell digitally to celebrate mass. Please visit the link below for a live stream of daily mass. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTQryY0nCQc4SusV9YKXhXg?view_as=subscriber
Teacher Contact About Distance Learning: Teachers have been reaching out to families over the past days to find out if families have the means to stay connected through a device and/or internet access. Please continue to check messages, Google Classroom, etc. and respond with the necessary information so that we can plan for teacher-led distance learning. Stay tuned for more information!
