St. Francis Update
Week of October 9th to October 13th
Dear St. Francis of Assisi students and families,
Lord God, in your goodness you provide for the needs of all your children. Remember all individuals and organizations who work together to relieve hunger, pain and suffering in the world and who serve in places we cannot go. Fill them with the strength of your Spirit, keep them safe from all harm, and give them hope and strength to carry on. Bless their efforts, and may their commitment lead us to recognize that we too have a role to play in helping those in need and inspire us to take action. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Francis Feast and Celebration
Thank you so much to all who attended our spaghetti dinner last week. It was a great turnout! Again, we would like to thank Stefan for the sauce, and for the generous donations from YFNED; without food, we would not have been able to gather as we had. A thank you must also go out to our School Council and to the staff and students who helped behind the scenes. We hope to gather again soon, as it was great fun and conversation!
Fire Prevention Week
October 8th to 14th is Fire Prevention Week across North America. Fire Prevention Week is a great time to learn about fire safety with kids. This year’s theme is “Cooking Safety Starts with You.”
Students and their families can take simple steps to keep themselves safe from fires at home:
