Passion Sunday

It was with great joy that I received the news that I am the recipient of the Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education “Monsignor Harrigan Award”. 

I am pleased to know that I am of support to you in your mission and ministry. We are indeed blessed to have Catholic Education in Ontario.

After being with you for over two years, I wish to salute the tremendous dedication of the OAPCE committee members in the life of our schools. I have witnessed your profound compassion and care in regard to the students, parents, and school staff and their spiritual, academic, and social growth. Most importantly, you are passionate advocates for our Catholic schools. 

Together with you, I give thanks to the Lord for the 85 years of existence of OAPCE. And in my prayer, I ask the Lord to confirm to all of you that you remain a part of a mission to be catalysts of joy and effective witnesses of the Risen Christ at work in our Catholic schools. 

May you carry with you the flame of Christ’s love for you and your children in every aspect of your daily life, and in all your hopes, dreams and aspirations! 

May Mary, who stood faithfully at the foot of her Son’s Cross and who is the Mother of the Church, continue to bless all of the past, present and future members of OAPCE and accompany you in your mission. 

Yours sincerely in Christ,
