"Our [Catholic] communities celebrate what matters most – inclusivity, diversity, excellence and faith.
Our schools produce graduates who are responsible citizens, caring family members and collaborative contributors to the common good of society.
These are values that we celebrate and share with all Ontarians."

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!
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

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

Catholic Virtues "Caught in the Act"
Holy Angels School Catholic Virtues Caught in the Act
Although respect is the virtue for the month for September, this Grade 2 student, is "Caught in the Act" of helping his classmate tie his shoes!
At Holy Angels, we celebrate getting "Caught in the Act" - demonstrating any of the virtues regardless of the monthly focus.
Holy Angels Catholic School's hope is to empower our students to be leaders ... to be stewards of Christ.
One kind gesture could be such a big deal! This act of kindness shows compassion and empathy for others. A kind gesture such as this helps the students
build relationships and trust with each other and ensures a positive start to the morning. Helping each other also helps build confidence and
leadership in our students.
"I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things". Saint Mother Teresa
