Dear Parents,

Our Fine Arts students have been working hard preparing for their upcoming production of “High School Musical”. Tickets are available for purchase in our office. There are matinee and evening performances (Ardrossan Community Theatre) on May 2 and May 3. Please come out and support the arts at Holy Redeemer!

We are preparing for our Track and Field day (grades 4-8) on Tuesday, May 14. In order for this day to run smoothly, we are looking for 3 parent volunteers per class. If you can assist this day please email me at peterr@eics.ab.ca. Thank you in advance for your help.

God Bless,

Peter Rachmistruk
Principal

Faith Corner

When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he vanished from their sight.

  • Luke 24:30–31​​​​​​​

Lord Jesus, thank you for being the Bread of Life. May our loving actions reveal the Good News that you are our Lord and our God. Praise to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. (Pearson Canada: Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ)
