Sergeant George Miok
George Miok Scholarship
George Miok was a former student in our school. He was well known as a student that was kind to everyone. He was always willing to lend a helping hand for his school community.
George was an Archbishop Jordan graduate, class of 2001, who after graduation joined the Canadian Armed Forces. George was also working on an Education Degree. He hoped to one day teach in a school in our school division.
George’s life was cut short while serving his country in Afghanistan in January of 2010. George’s memory lives on through the George Miok Scholarship. A local business, Jacek Chocolates, generously funds the scholarship which allows our school to acknowledge and highlight the kindness our students display.
Each month, beginning in March through to June, students that show a strong sense of character through acts of service may receive a “Miok Moment” and be entered into a draw that month for a $25.00 gift card to Indigo. There will be 4 winners each month from March to June. One student from each grade level. All who receive a “Miok Moment” will be entered into a draw in June for a $250 gift certificate (Staples) towards a Chromebook. The winner of this annual draw will be recognized with a certificate and their name will be added to the school’s “Miok Moments” plaque.
Congratulations to our Winners of the June Miok Moments!
These Students received a $25 gift card to Indigo:
Grade 5: Cole MacDonald
Grade 6: Jade Ebertz
Grade 7: Nicholas Danilak
Grade 8: Prince Nuesca

Welcome to a new year of Catholic education and faith formation for your child!
Each year, in a Catholic school, your child will learn about many aspects of their Catholic faith— including learning about the seven sacraments. In our Archdiocese, preparing children for the celebration of their own sacraments always occurs in the parish, with the support of the school: • preparing for First Reconciliation, and then First Eucharist, can begin when a child is 7 years of age and in Grade 2 or older
• preparing for Confirmation can begin when a child is about 12 years of age and in Grade 6 or older • special preparation is also available for children of any age who are not yet baptized
Most children attending Catholic schools are ready to receive at the ages shown above, but there is no such thing as too late. Are you seeking for your child to celebrate a sacrament, such as Baptism, First Communion or Confirmation? Are you ready to help them live out their Baptismal promises? Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish and Elk Island Catholic Schools are each involved in preparing your child for a Catholic sacrament along with you. It is a group effort, and everyone has a role:
• As a parent, the Church has always held that you are the primary teacher of the faith for your child. You teach them about God; set the example; talk about your own faith; and you bring them to Mass. • The place where the sacraments are celebrated and lived is the Catholic parish. We the people of God in the Church are each part of the Body of Christ. Being in relationship with the parish community (with all its challenges and blessings) is essential for your life of faith and that of your child. The preparation for, and celebration of, the sacraments happens in the parish church. • You must sign your child up for preparation at the parish. The school doesn’t do this part of the process for you. Catholic schools are a special place for children to learn more about Jesus Christ, to practice living in a community of faith, and to develop and deepen a relationship with Christ. We (Catholic parish and Catholic school) are eager to walk beside you and your children during this very special time. Please call OLPH parish office 780-467-5470, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.olph.ca/sacraments to get started or learn more.
As you prepare your child for their sacraments may this also be a special time for you - of deepening your own understanding and of growing in faith for the whole family!
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Jim Corrigan, Pastor
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish
A Roman Catholic Christian community.
We come together at our Lord’s invitation to worship God, celebrate the sacraments, and deepen our faith. We strive to be thankful, generous and welcoming, and are sent forth to help advance God’s Kingdom on earth by proclaiming the Gospel and serving others.
Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
The St. Theresa Parent Advisory Council performs many vital functions for our school community, by helping to facilitate school wide student functions and providing valuable funding to our school via fundraising. Parents involved in the PAC learn about planning and development within the school and are part of the planning process. These roles make their involvement very important to the families, administration and teachers.

Secretary: Rosie Conrad
Fundraising Volunteers: Lindsay Tomalik & Leanne Doetzel
