The St. Joan of Arc school community was thankful to have His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins and the Pontifical Master of Ceremonies, Father Mark Kolosowski celebrate the Maple school’s 25th Anniversary Mass on Thursday, October 4, 2018. The pastor of St. David’s Church, Father Ernesto De Ciccio, and the pastor of St. Andre Bessette, Father Peter Choi, also joined His Eminence in co-celebrating. Many special guests also participated in the Mass at the school.
The St. Joan of Arc school community is very grateful to all of its past and current staff, students and parents for their commitment to St. Joan of Arc over the last 25 years. The student council president thanked the Cardinal for coming and announced that St. Joan of Arc students had been collecting 25 cent coins in honour of the 25th anniversary, which would be donated to ShareLife. Gifts of non perishable food items were also donated as part of the school’s Thanksgiving food drive and were processed during the Offertory.
