St. Francis Update
Week of May 22nd to 26th
Dear St. Francis of Assisi students and families,
To recognize Jesus in the world, people need to see him through us and our words and actions. We need to reflect on what it means to be cooperative contributors to our communities. This means, that we are helpful in our homes, friendships, classrooms, teams, and with other groups working for worthy causes.
Let us pray:
God, your Gospel of Life calls us to work
in communion with one another
as we help build Your Kingdom.
Lord, help us to find meaning and dignity in the works we do.
Open our ears to hear your voice clearly
Open our eyes to see your beauty in all
Open our minds so our understanding
may break down walls of fear and prejudice.
Bless our schools and communities
as places of friendship
as places of belonging
and as places of welcome
where everyone feels safe
where everyone has a place
where all are united in You, dear God.
As members of one family in Jesus we continue our day in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
The Territorial Skills Competition that took place on April 20, 2023 also served as a qualifier for the National Skills Competition, as a result Team Yukon has 15 competitors participating in Nationals, in 13 different trade areas! The team is made up of high school students, and apprentices, with some folks just starting their trade this year and others who have been involved for years. St. Francis has one student who is competing. If you would like to watch the live stream of the competition, it will be on the Skills Canada YouTube channel May 25 and 26 live from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
FINAL CHANCE TO BUY A YEARBOOK! This is your last chance – as in after May 26th you will not be able to buy the 2023 Yearbook again!! This year’s book has been highly anticipated among the students as it will contain a brand-new feature. Yearbook+ allows buyers to scan select photos in the book to view even more pictures that didn’t make it into the final printed copy. It’ll give you access to the some 2,000+ photos taken here and around the school at various events, all available on your smart phone. What incredible value for only 40$! Don’t miss out!
