WCDSB Updates

Message from the Administration…

During the season of Lent, we travel with Jesus on a journey.

We spend time with him in the desert. We talk with him through the towns and villages of Judea, on his way to Jerusalem.

We stand at the foot of the cross, and later, at the empty tomb….

Lent gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect on Jesus’ journey and on own journey in faith.

We have focused our attention on improving ourselves.

We have asked the students to pick one aspect that they would like to improve on, something they want to get better at or something they want to give up.

This has become their focus for Lent.  May we continue to grow and learn from Jesus during this Lenten season.

 

Blessings,

Rod Eckert and Sherry MacDonald
