Mrs. Bowers, Coordinator Religious Education (CRE) for the School board, on Thursday September 8 met with the school managers of the 6 Catholic Primary Schools. Objective of the meeting was to present the school managers with the 2016-2017 year plan of activities scheduled by the CRE and strengthening of the Catholic Identity at the schools. Topics for the day were "The Purpose of Catholic Education" and "The Mass". During the meetiing the school managers were presented with a copy of "Soualiga Catholice" the commemorative booklet by Mr. Gerard van Veen on the occasion of the 175th Anniversary of the St. Martin of Tours Parish; a booklet on Saint Theresa of Calcutta and a booklet on Catholic Prayers and Practices.
After the well deserved summer vacation, the schools started the academic year 2016 - 2017 on Monday August 15, 2016. Part of our Catholic Identity is the celebration of Holy Mass within the schools. In the past week several of the schools have enjoyed Holy Mass with Father Adam, our parish priest. For a pictorial please click the picture of the St. Dominic High School Holy Mass.
