Blessed are you, Lord God,
Creator of body and mind and heart;
you have sent the Spirit of wisdom and knowledge
to guide your people in all their ways.
At the beginning of this new school year,
in this time of uncertainty and anxiety,
we implore your mercy.
Bless and protect our students, teachers,
staffs, their families, and especially _____.
Give wisdom to the decision makers,
be they in our schools or in our homes.
Expand the horizons of our minds,
and deepen our commitment to seek
the truth of your ways.
Enliven our faith to reach out to those in need,
particularly those isolated and lonely.
In these days when so much has changed,
help us to trust in the love of your Son Jesus,
our Divine Teacher, who is the same
yesterday, today, and forever.
Amen. (Catholic Post)
Dear Parents and Guardians:
We wish to express our joy in welcoming families back to school this year! Our well-wishes are with those who will be coming to school in person and those who will be beginning school through the HCDSB on-line academy.
Families who are attending school will have received an e-mail with the procedures for our return to school. Please click on the link to access this information.
Families who have opted for their children to return remotely will receive information from the academy prior to the beginning of classes on September 14th.
We appreciate the patience and understanding of all as we try to navigate through these unprecedented times and recognize the anxiety that families may be experiencing. Please continue to reach out if you have any concerns.
Your partners in Catholic Education,
G. Giacalone, D. Owens, E. Scannell
