We Remember at SAA

Thank you so much to the Grade one class under the guidance of Mrs. Teixeira and Ms. Dugan, who provided such beautiful faith leadership in our Remembrance Day celebration, which took place today at 9:00 a.m. We were so blessed to have our District Chaplain, Mr. Doug Kramer join us in addition to our former Principal of SAA, Mr. Greg Lamer.

Mr. Lamer presents Sister Alphonse Academy with a special gift

Mr. Lamer made a special presentation to our SAA community and gifted the school community with a beautiful painting of holy Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Mr. Lamer received this painting himself as a gift and now he is gifting this beautiful painting to all of us!


Thank you so much to Mr. Lamer for this special gift. We too believe that Mother Teresa's giving and caring spirit will also be with us at SAA. What a beautiful gift and dedication to our school.

Novena Prayer for Catholic Education

Please join us in saying the Novena prayer on a daily basis up until we celebrate Catholic Education Sunday on November 8th. We are grateful for the gift of Catholic Education and take time to reflect upon the importance of this each day.
