April 2019

We’re into the final third of the school year now. With April upon us, let’s look forward to longer, warmer days ahead. Onward to our events for April 2019!kids

There are many events and activities taking place in our schools across Niagara Catholic this month. To discover what’s happening in your child’s school, please visit their school website to see the school newsletter or calendar.

On April 8, Niagara Catholic will celebrate the many parent, grandparent and community volunteers who enrich the lives of students in our schools at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast at the Holiday Inn Parkway Convention Centre in St. Catharines. More than 300 people are expected to attend the event – and there are many more who are unable to attend due to work commitments, and we want all of our volunteers to know how much we appreciate everything they do for our students every day.

Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday on April 14. Niagara Catholic students and staff will mark this holiest week in our calendar through prayer. Many will re-enact The Stations of the Cross, Jesus’s last day on Earth as a man. A reminder our schools and sites will be closed on April 19 and 22 for Good Friday and Easter Monday, as we head out of the Lenten season, and into the Easter season in the Church.

Have a blessed April, everyone!
