Dear St. Francis of Assisi students and families,
Lord, we thank you for the many colours, cultures, and customs
that we share in this world.
In our differences, unite us by your love.
Enable us to act together to uphold life
and to make this world a just and peaceful household
for all humanity.
Today we ask you: O God, hear our prayer and grant us your peace. Amen
The traditional date for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is January 18-25. The octave (eight days) has been celebrated continuously since 1894, but was a dream of many Christian leaders since the early years of the 19th century. This week we will celebrate Christian Unity when we gather for our liturgy on Wednesday.
We are looking for Grade 11 students and parents to help with Grad! Traditionally, the Grad Mass is followed by a reception with some light snacks and beverages. This is usually hosted by students in grade 11 with the help of their parents. We are also looking to create a registered St. Francis Grad society to help aid in fundraising efforts. This will benefit next year's grad class, so we would like some of this year's grade 11 parents to help take the lead on this. If you can assist with either of these efforts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The applications for Wood Street Centre programs are due:
Grade 11/12 January 25, 2023
If you need any assistance or information regarding the application/process, please contact Kris Bruneau at 867-667-8413 or email@example.com.

Data Privacy Week
The Yukon Information and Privacy Commissioner invites parents and educators to use materials on the website https://www.yukonombudsman.ca/yukon-information-and-privacy-commissioner/youth/teaching-tools to discuss digital literacy and online privacy. This link has a webcast, graphic novel, discussion guide and blog to assist families in leading a ‘family tech talk’ with youth about how they can protect themselves when they’re spending time online.

St. Francis Clubs
The St. Francis Debate Club offers students the opportunity to engage in lively competitive debate using the Canadian National Debate Format. As a member of the Canadian Speech and Debate Federation, our club has access to training, workshops, and competitions with teams from across Canada and beyond. Students will be given opportunity to learn how to construct, deliver, and strategize argumentation in a disciplined manner. Topics up for debate range from the ridiculous and inconsequential to the most serious and pressing issues of our day. Join us, Thursdays at lunch in Portable 44!
