Dear Parents,

Staffing update: We would like to extend congratulations to Ms. St. Amand who has accepted a counselling and teaching position at ABJ beginning next school year. We wish Ms. St. Amand all the best in her new role and she will truly be missed.

We would like to welcome Mrs. Nicole Cameron who will be teaching Language Arts and Social Studies to our grade 7 and 8 students beginning next school year. Mrs. Cameron is currently teaching at St. Andre Bessette, and has previously taught in the Calgary Catholic school district for 5 years. We are excited to have Mrs. Cameron join our Holy Redeemer school community.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Boys and Girls Club to offer a Before and After School Program for our families. An information session will be held at Holy Redeemer on Wednesday, June 12 at 6:00pm. During this session they will cover all programming topics such as before and after school care plans, fee structure, non school days, summer camps and will stay on hand to answer any remaining questions parents may have. 

An announcement regarding our Daycare will be coming shortly.

We will be having a “Fun-Day” on Monday, June 17th. Students in our Fine Arts and Recreation and Leadership Academies are preparing stations for the students to participate in. The activities will be held outside (weather permitting). On this day lunch will be provided for the students free of charge. Students will receive a hamburger, fries, drink and ice cream. There will be dairy free options and non-gluten options for students with allergies. Please contact the office if you require additional information.

God Bless,

Peter Rachmistruk

Faith Corner

On the Feast of Pentecost, the Church celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles.

John 14:26

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I have said to you.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth. Amen.  (Pearson Canada: Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ)
