St. Martin Catholic School Lenten Activities

During the season of Lent St. Martin Catholic School in Terrace Bay has been learning what it means to enter into a season of spiritual preparation and renewal.

The grade one and two class mixed, rolled and baked the traditional bread of Lent (the pretzel), which represents arms crossed in prayer, as a reminder that prayer is an important part of our Lenten journey.

The grade one and two class has also prepared for their Journey to the Cross through a personal and class Lenten promise, as well as personal Lenten prayers and the reenactment of the Stations of the Cross.

The students learned about forgiveness through a special art project with Ms. Godin and our Faith Formation and Catholicity Coordinator, Sister Stephanie.

Sister Stephanie demonstrated to the class, through a visual using the cross, how our sins are truly forgiven by God.

Christian Meditation

On Monday, October 30th, all classes at St. Martin Catholic School in Terrace Bay, ON learned about Christian Meditation as one way of praying. Students and staff all entered into the experience with openness and eagerness.

If you happen to be at St. Martin Catholic School (or any other school in the Superior North Catholic District School Board) and see a doorknob hanger that says "Time to Pray," you know that they class is taking a few moments to meditate together. Other classes and schools are also learning Christian Meditation - come and join us!

Junior and Senior Kindergarten students learning about Christian Meditation

It's always amazing to me how quickly the students respond and enter into this quiet form of prayer! I often hear students say, "That was great!" or "That felt really good!" after even just a minute of meditation. God is within and this is one more way to stay in touch with our Creator who is closer than we can ever imagine!

Students have some amazing questions! In the Grade 5/6 class, we had a wonderful discussion on how God can be everywhere and in everyone, and still be complete!

Celebrating our School Feasts

Each of our schools is distinctively named in honour of one of our many saints or using one of the titles in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary or Our Lord.

Our School Feast Days are great opportunities to remember who we are, where we have come from, and where we are going in Christ and through the Holy Spirit.

Holy Angels: October 2

Holy Saviour: There is no formal Feast of the Holy Saviour in the church calendar, but a good alternative would be the Feast of Christ the King, the last Sunday in Ordinary Time, which falls this year on November 26.

Our Lady of Fatima: May 13

Our Lady of Lourdes: February 11 (Also World Day of Prayer for the Sick)

Saint Brigid: February 1
