What's Heating Up at Holy Spirit

January 18-22

Thus says the Lord...Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. -Isaiah 43:1-

What is the Lamb of God?

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Reading: John 1:35–42

John the Baptist recognizes Jesus as the Lamb of God, and Jesus receives his first follower

Family is an essential factor in the faith life of children. Parents are responsible for baptizing their children and introducing them to the Catholic faith. As a faith community we help to nurture and develop children to know and follow Jesus. We pray for all our Holy Spirit families as we continue to help one another grow in our faith in Jesus.

Pink Shirt Day Fundraiser

Our Holy Spirit School Council is selling pink shirt t-shirts for $10 and hoodies for $22.50. This fundraiser is to promote being kind and pink shirt day on February 24, 2021. Orders can be placed online here and will be delivered to the school where they will be distributed to the students. The deadline for orders is Monday, January 25.

We are ordering the t-shirts and hoodies through Staples and they were designed by Jeremiah Peters, a Coast Salish artist from WSÁNEĆ:

"I chose the thunderbird for their great strength and protection, the wings wrapped around the child's face, from the biggest hearts to the smallest."

For every shirt ordered $1 will be donated to indigenous education and anti-bullying causes in Alberta. Thank you for supporting this important message and our School Council. If you have any questions please contact one of these School Council Members:

The Saints - Our Heavenly Friends

Each month we learn about a new saint and how their life work brought them great joy and joy to others. This month, the students are learning about St. Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897). She was a young nun who was sick and died at the age of 24. During her short life, she showed us that she could do small things with great love for God. We are challenged to do the little things for others that show great love as well. Learn more about her in this video.

2020-2021 Yearbook orders

Have you ordered your yearbook for this year?

In order for us to be able to maintain the price and be able to provide yearbooks we need to have a minimum order of 120 books. We are far from that goal.

Yearbooks are a special keepsake of your child's year of learning at Holy Spirit Catholic School. They are filled with the memories of friends, activities and events that are part of your child's life. Time goes quickly and memories fade but a yearbook will bring a smile, a laugh and help us to reminisce in years to come. Don't miss out on the chance to get a little piece of history at Holy Spirit School.

To order, go to the PowerSchool parent portal where fees are paid and select the option to add the yearbook to your cart. Payment must be made before your order is complete and placed. Cost of the yearbook is $25.00.
