The Patriot Report – March 15th, 2019

Reflection

The great meaning of our life is found in the cross. While the cross is a powerful symbol for Christians for representing the sacrifice that Christ made for humanity, it is also a lesson for us in taking responsibility in our own lives. In Mt 16:24 Jesus says “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” To take up our cross is to shoulder the tasks we are responsible for. Being responsible means to deny our immediate desires and wants. Being responsible means to make sacrifices. Being responsible means to confront the troubles of this world. The meaning of our life is not found in wealth, or pleasure, or fame. The meaning of our life is found in taking responsibility, in carrying the cross as Christ did.

St Jude's Speech Arts is Golden

The Archbishop Carney Regional Speech Arts Festival was this past Tuesday and Wednesday. I am so very proud of all of our students. We excelled in all areas of the Speech Arts. All three class performances (Gr. 6, Gr. 1, and Gr. K) were excellent and each received Gold. Our individual students did amazing as well with many receiving a Gold. Other principals came up to me complimenting our students and I could not be more proud of the students, the teachers, and the parents who worked hard in practicing for the speech arts.
