WORLD MISSION SUNDAY, October 23
At the initiative of Pope Pius XI in 1926, the second last Sunday during October became known as World Mission Sunday.  Catholics throughout the world are invited to pray for and give to the missions.  The collection this Sunday is organized by the Pontifical Missions Society.  The funds collected assist some 1, 250 mission dioceses under the responsibility of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.  As agreed by the Holy See and the Bishops of Canada, a portion of the Canadian contributions to this collection will continue to be used until 2020 to assist sox dioceses in Northern Canada which for many years has also been under the jurisdiction of the Congregation.

"How I long to find the right words to stir up enthusiasm for a new chapter of evangelization full of fervour, joy, generosity, courage, boundless love and attraction!...I once more invoke the Holy Spirit. I implore him to come and renew the Church, to stir and impel her to go forth boldly to evangelize peoples." Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 261

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR WORLD MISSION DAY 2021 - "We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard." (Acts 4:20)

Our Intermediate Students in Grades 5 through to 7 began their Volleyball Season against Immaculate Conception School on Thursday October 21st. Students from both schools were so excited to be able to play games against another school for the first time since 2020!

Our staff participated in the Provincial Professional Development Day on Friday October 22nd, with teachers participating in a variety of workshops in literacy, numeracy, and much more! With so many conferences being offered in a virtual format, it was great that our teachers were able to take advantage of such great opportunities to learn more about their craft.

We are looking for people who are interested in working at the school on an on-call basis, both for Teachers Teaching on Call, and for people who are interested in working as an Educational Assistant on Call. If you are interested, please contact Principal Bryan MacLean directly at bmaclean@cispg.ca, thank you for your interest in these positions.
