OPTIONAL School Supply Ordering is now available!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Custom School Supplies is once again offering the parents of children planning to attend SACRED HEART ACADEMY next year the opportunity to pre-purchase their school supplies. We will purchase, package and deliver all of your children's school supplies for the next year. As a part of our service, we also provide a sheet of 80 pre-printed labels personalized for your child. Custom School Supplies has been serving schools and parents in Alberta for over 15 years.

There are a few simple steps to ensure your child will receive quality, standardized brand name products.

1) Please visit our website at www.CustomSchoolSupplies.ca

2) Click on “Order Now” and then put in the school code: SACREDHEART2022

3) When you enter your child’s name when ordering, this is the exact name that will be printed on the 80 pre-printed labels personalized for your child.

4) You will be able to securely order your child’s supplies online. Payment is verified via Paypal. You will be able to pay with a credit card or if you already have a PayPal account you may choose to pay with your PayPal account.

5) Paypal will ask you for a shipping address –although your school supplies will be delivered directly to your school, this is one of the verification process PayPal uses when you pay with a credit card.

Please make sure the address you give exactly matches the address where your credit card bill goes to.

6) Your school supplies will be delivered directly to your school, ready for your child when they arrive at school the first day.

7) The deadline to complete your order online without penalty is May 31st, 2022.

Online ordering will still be available after the deadline (until August 1st) but will be subject to a $10.00 late fee.

THIS IS A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM but one that we are sure will be of value to you and your school as it ensures that students will be provided with quality school supplies that meet the school’s exact needs. The supplies will be packaged and DELIVERED DIRECTLY TO THE SCHOOL in August before school starts. This will give you one less thing to worry about over the summer and provide you with one less expense in September.

Pray for Ukraine

​The Church has encouraged the faithful to pray for the imminent restoration of peace, dialogue, and human fraternity in Ukraine, in solidarity with the Head of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk, in unison with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, with the people of Ukraine as well as with Canadians of Ukrainian origin and descent.

Student's Prayer for Ukraine

Almighty God we pray for the situation in Ukraine.

We pray for those who live in fear, that you may grant them peace.

We pray that the voices for a peaceful solution may prosper.

Lord, we ask that you raise up peacemakers on all sides.

Give diplomats wisdom, understanding and build trust.

Lord, we lift this prayer to you.

Amen.

Holy and Gracious God

We pray for the people of Ukraine.

We pray for all those who are afraid;

that your everlasting arms hold them in this time of great fear.

We pray for leaders on the world stage;

that they are inspired by the wisdom and courage of Christ.

Above all, Lord, today we pray for peace for Ukraine.

And we ask this in the name of your blessed Son.

Amen
