MARY, MOTHER OF JESUS
Principal
The Gospels teach us many important
things about Mary:
M. Harrison
Vice-Principal

She listened to the Holy Spirit in her
heart and responded with her “yes”.
 She did all God asked of her.
 She showed us how to live as followers of
Jesus.
 She gave thanks and praise to God for His
love for her.

God our Father, we come together to celebrate Mary, the mother of Jesus. She was
born and lived her whole life free from sin.
She always did what you wanted her to do.
May we listen to your will and say “yes” with
joy as Mary did. We pray in the name of
Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
AMEN

SCHOOL COUNCIL
The next meeting
of the San Lorenzo
Ruiz Catholic
School Advisory
Council will take
place on:
Tuesday, May 12
at 6:30 pm.
A Person of Acceptance…
 Is friendly and open to all God’s
people, regardless of age, beliefs,
gender, culture or ability
 Sees the positive traits in all people even if s/he disagrees with
them
 Avoids judging or stereotyping
others
 Understands that there may be
more than one way to do things
 Sticks up for the ‘underdog’
One of the great wonders of the
world we live in is that no two people
are exactly alike.
We may share biological families or national identity or cultural and ethnic identity but
we are all very unique and distinct creations. God breaks the mold every time!
The virtue of acceptance describes our ability to look at the attitudes and actions of those
around us and consider each person without judging them. The virtue of acceptance
means that we look beyond what we see- a person’s skin colour, ethnic background,
religion, age, gender and see a person created and loved by God.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
ARE YOU
MOVING?
We are in the
process of
planning classes
and staffing for the
2015—2016 school
year. If you are

important that you
let us know.

at 905-501-0400.
Catholic Education Week is scheduled for the week of May 3-8, 2015. This year's
theme is "Exploring Paths of Joy”. The scriptural passage that guides our theme is:
“Were not our hearts burning within us while He was talking to us on the road.?”
(Luke 24:32) This year’s five sub-themes, one for each of the five days of Catholic
Education Week, help students to understand the rich meaning of this year’s theme:
Monday: Walking Together and Sharing Our Story
Tuesday: Opening the Scriptures
Wednesday: Welcoming Others to the Table
Thursday: Recognizing Jesus in the Breaking of the Bread
Friday: Proclaiming the Good News
Catholic Education Week begins on a Sunday to highlight the partnership that remains the foundation of Catholic education between our Catholic schools and local
Catholic parishes.
At San Lorenzo Ruiz, we are celebrating Catholic Education Week by having a school-wide
retreat on Monday, May 4th from 8:30—11:00 am. From 12:00—1:50 pm, we are having
our Crowning of Mary Celebration. We will end our day with a school-wide liturgy.

The Greatest Gift of All is to Give of Oneself
“Angel” Hair for Kids
Ms. Nimchuk issued a challenge to all students, parents and teachers to: “GROW YOUR HAIR”!!!! back in November. “Angel Hair
for Kids” is a program of “A Child’s Voice Foundation” that provides
wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disadvantaged children in
Canada who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment. All of the hair collected will be donated to “Angel Hair for
Kids”. What better gift could you give to a child suffering from cancer or another difficult disease? Hair donations were collected during Lent as part of almsgiving.
We had 4 students donate as well as Ms. Nimchuk (this being her 3 rd
time donating). What did the girls think of this experience?
“Donating our hair was important to us. It made us feel happy to
help others feel good about themselves during a very difficult time.
Some of us felt more beautiful with short hair – it’s been an amazing
experience. It’s something many of us have wanted to do but were
afraid to do it. Doing it together made the experience even more
special.” Thank you to: Sonali J. (grade 8); Mary D. ( grade 8);
Maya Y. (grade 5); Kathryna H. (grade 5) and Ms. Nimchuk.
