Together in Learning and Faith
November 18th - Our Lady of the Angels Catholic School
Catholic Education Sunday
A new alliance has been formed to tell the story of Catholic education in Alberta. The grassroots initiative seeks to present a united front to advocate for Catholic education’s future, at a time when there are growing threats against it.
The goal of GrACE – Grateful Advocates for Catholic Education – is to inform people about the history and issues facing Catholic education, and its uniqueness and benefits, through events and discussions in parishes, schools and communities throughout the province.
To learn about the Grace alliance please visit their website.

Power of Positivity to Unwinding our Minds
November's theme to help our whole health is: Unwinding our Minds. Mindfulness will teach us how to unwind our minds. Mindfulness means paying attention to things in our lives on purpose and without judgement. We will practice being mindful each morning this month.
