Madonna Weekly News

May 9 - May 13

A Message from Superintendent of Schools, Michael Hauptman

Dear Community of Elk Island Catholic Schools

I know that you are acutely aware that the crisis in Fort Murray has reached epic proportions and requires us to respond both in prayer, support and open arms.

We have started to receive families in our communities and when they arrive, we need to open up our doors of mercy and accept without question those in need of our care. We know that many of these families are not from Alberta and have no families to turn to at this time.

Some of us may have new students to add to classrooms, some may have families in need of shelter, and others may require supplies. Regardless of the need, we will find a way.

Within each community, different ways of providing support will be available and each response will be different. As information becomes available and requests come in, we will contact our school leadership to pass on the possibilities.

Continue to pray for rain to quench the fire and for solace for the families now orphaned from their community who many have lost much.

"When someone has been give much, much will be required in return: and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required." Luke 12:49

Where is Jesus? In your actions today and moving forward to support our newest refugees.

Take care and God Bless everyone during this difficult time.
