Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends

We have finally reached Holy Week!  Please use the following link to find information about the Mass times during Holy Week at St. Joseph Parish https://www.stjosephkitchener.org/index.html

Take some time this week to continue to explore your personal relationship with God.  At St. Bernadette, we have been doing this each day through the process of prayer.  First thing in the morning, the entire school participates in a prayer that allows is to calm our minds and focus on the message that God is trying to deliver to us in our hearts and our minds.  Too often we are too busy and too caught up in the fast-paced lives that we lead, to really stop and listen to the voice of God within us.  This is the season of rebirth and certainly the world is “charged with the Grandeur of God”.  May the Easter Season bring you joy, and may you find strength in being true people of Love, Hope and Faith. Wishing you the blessings of the Easter Season – may your minds be free of worry and your hearts full with hope!
