Message from the Office
Dear Parents & Students,
Wow!!! We have already finished one month of school!!! It has been a busy month full of students learning and wonderful activities. We are so blessed to be able to provide such a wonderful Christ-Centered, French Immersion program to our young people.

École OLPH Cheer Team Information
OLPH is pleased to offer a cheer team this season.
Cheer is the fastest growing sport in North America right now and has recently been made a provisional sport in the Olympics. Cheer is more than standing on the sidelines cheering for other sports teams, cheer teams compete against other cheer teams in their own competitions.
We are looking for 12-28 athletes that are interested in tumbling, dancing and stunting-Grades 5-8 welcome!!
Once the team is put together practices will be at EPK on Tuesdays from 4:00-6:00pm from October until May. The team will perform at 2-3 competitive events and cost for the year is expected to be under $100.
If you have questions please email OLPHcheerteam@gmail.com
School Challenge Accepted!
The month of October is the
Month of the Holy Rosary
We encourage all of our families to take
part in our second District Challenge
for the month of October...
Pray A Rosary!!!
The month of October is a good time
to commit to praying the Rosary everyday.
The Rosary will bring great peace
and holiness to your life.
The Rosary is the best method of honoring Mary.
Stay tuned for our school challenge
for the month of November!!!
Have circumstances prevented you from celebrating the sacraments within the common time frame? Concerned that it is “too late” or your child is too old to celebrate the sacraments? Worried that you might be judged or “in trouble”?
This is simply not true. We welcome all your children to prepare and celebrate the sacraments of baptism, first reconciliation, first communion and confirmation. Your child is in grade 5? Doesn’t matter! Grade 10? Doesn’t matter!
ALL ARE WELCOME!! SACRAMENTS DO NOT HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE!!
Come out on Monday, October 2 at 7:00pm at OLPH Parish and register your child.
We will work with you and your child to receive the gift and the grace of our Catholic sacraments.
If you have any questions/concerns please contact Raylene at 780-467-5470 or firstname.lastname@example.org
