Weekly Update March 15 – 19

Loving Father of mine,
I feel the pace quicken, the time draw near.
I am filled with joy as I move toward Easter
and the promised reconciliation with you.
Teach me to follow the example of your Son,
to be worthy of being called one his people: a Christian.
Help me to live each day as he did
turning hatred to love and conflict to peace.
I await the new life with eagerness, faith
and a deep gratitude.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.

Thank you to those who have donated to St. Anthony Cares in support of the HCCF 24 Hour Fast. We have already raised almost $600 of our $5000 goal.

When you choose to fast – whether from food, social media, television, or something else, you’re connecting to our neighbours in need – those who are forced to fast by their poverty.

Joining our 24-hour fast is an opportunity to help your neighbours in need by raising awareness as well as funds through sponsors.

Struggling HCDSB families need your help to purchase food and other basic necessities, as well as financial assistance to participate fully in their education – for things like trips, team fees, and other learning materials.

To find out more information about the 24 hour fast, please visit

We invite students, staff & parents to promise to fast from something during the 24 hour period and to support our team, St. Anthony Cares by making a donation to this worthy cause. Please click on the link. to make the donation. Students may collect pledges from family members by using the 24 Hour Fast Pledge Form. Tax receipts will be provided. A number of Milton schools have challenged each other to raise the most funds. Thank you in advance for your support!!
