A Prayer for our Environment

All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.

You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty.

Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth, so precious in your eyes.

Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it,

that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.

Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor and the earth.

Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation,

to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature as we journey towards your infinite light.

We thank you for being with us each day.

Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace.

Pope FRANCIS

Note from the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Please note that teachers will give daily lessons as per the Alberta government's mandate of 1 hour of school per day. Teachers have been asked to link all lessons to the program of studies. We understand, that the situation of working from home, schooling your children, the experience of a job loss is more than a lot. This may bring many of us to the edge. I want to let you know that it is okay to do what you can for school. Maybe everything thing will not be done. That is okay. The key is that you and your children are well first. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.
