First Communion Mass April 22

Our Grade Two students will receive the sacrament of First Communion on Sunday, April 22, 2 pm at Precious Blood Catholic Church.  Parishioners, families and friends are welcome to join us in worship.  Many thanks to parents, parish and school staff who have helped prepare the children for this important day.  May God bless our students and their families!

Congratulations Lindsay Barton!

Congratulations to Lindsay Barton who was recognized by the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board on Wednesday April 18 for her commitment as a parent volunteer.  Lindsay is a parent volunteer who has been a long-standing member of our Catholic School Advisory Council and a lead for our Healthy Snack program.  She has shopped for the school snack program, hand delivered hot lunches, served pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, and fruit on Track and Field day.  She dedicates a substantial amount of time to helping our students stay healthy and keep learning.  Lindsay is a regular volunteer on the many experiential trips that our classes take.  Her warm smile, supportive nature, and dedicated spirit all help make her an integral part of the Precious Blood School team and a model for how school and home should work together.  Congratulations, and thank you Lindsay!
