Easter Blessing

SJBF – Easter 2018

March 2018

“They can no longer die; for they are like the angels.

They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.”

Luke 20:36

At the York Catholic District School Board, we are committed to developing school communities formed by Catholic beliefs and traditions that enable all members of our learning community to engage in their personal faith journey.
For forty days in Lent, we have participated in the call of the Church to pray, fast/abstain, and to give to those in need. Throughout the Lenten Season, our schools demonstrate what it means to live the Gospel by putting our Catholic faith into action. Students and staff reflect on Christ’s Passion and His greatest gift to us, His Resurrection.
We are truly blessed with the gift of publicly-funded Catholic education.  Our faith is alive and vibrant in school communities. We have come together for Masses, liturgies, charitable endeavours and other Lenten activities, as we all prepare for the Resurrection of our Saviour.
Easter is the most important holy day in the Christian calendar. The Resurrection of Christ is the core event of our Catholic faith. It is the Resurrection that reminds us that each student in our care, and each person we encounter, is a child of God. We celebrate the God of life who reminds us that we are all children of hope and resurrection.
As we look ahead to celebrating the resurrection of our Lord, I wish you and your families the blessings of the Easter season.
Happy Easter!
