Where should we fix our gaze along the journey of Lent? On the Crucifix. Jesus on the Cross is the compass of life that points us to H​eaven. ~ Pope Francis

We continue to journey through Lent, side by side with our students, staff and families. During this period of fasting, almsgiving and prayer, we keep in mind our gratitude for the gift of Catholic education.

Last month, five justices heard the Theodore appeal. The Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association, backed by Catholic school boards from Alberta and Ontario, made a strong case and we feel confident. We will keep our families updated, and invite you to learn more at www.opencatholiceducation.ca.

Saturday, May 4 is our Catholic Education Matters Gala. Tickets are on sale now for $50.00, and you can get them by calling 306-791-7200. We will honour our three Distinguished Alumni, Father Lorne Crozon, Karen Donnelly and Christopher Kutarna, at the Gala. We look forward to celebrating with our community.

Then Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. Now when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was God’s Son!” Mark 15: 37-39

Easter break means no school for students from Friday, April 19 through to Sunday April 28. We pray everyone enjoys a nice break to really celebrate the Risen Lord, and look forward to seeing all our students again on Monday, April 29. We wish you all a great Easter break!
