Thank you to the amazing Dr. Jody Carrington for sharing her wisdom tonight with parents, guardians and staff. Dr. Carrington is both incredibly knowledgeable and hilarious. We are grateful for the opportunity to hear her speak once again. Thank you Dr. Carrington! ...

This week is Substitute Appreciation Week! This week we say thank you to the substitute teachers and substitute support staff who support our schools, students and staff. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, substitute staff members have become even more critical to maintain the operations of schools. HFCRD is grateful to all substitutes who have been there when we needed them.

“Substitutes are incredibly valuable members of our school communities,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “When staff are unable to work for any reason, our substitutes step in and allow our schools to operate smoothly. We are very grateful to our substitutes for the important role they play.”

To show our appreciation, each substitute will be gifted a small token of our gratitude. We encourage staff, students, parents and guardians to take a moment this week to say thank you to the amazing substitutes who step into our schools, often without any notice, to ensure students continue to receive quality education while staff are away. Thank you substitutes!

HFCRD is currently seeking both Certified Substitute Teachers and Non-Certified Classroom Supervisors in Manning, Grimshaw, Peace River, McLennan, High Prairie and Valleyview. For more information or to apply, please call (780) 624-3956.

The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division warmly congratulates Amy McIntyre who is the recipient of the 2021-22 Excellence in Catholic Education Award.

Amy is a faith leader both in her school and community. She provides exemplary work in her role as Faith Coordinator at St. Andrew’s School in High Prairie and is an active member of St. Paul’s Parish. She supports the organization of all of the school’s Faith activities throughout the year and acts as a liaison between the parish and school. She coordinates school based sacramental preparation and parish celebrations for the sacrament of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation.

She also serves on the Grouard-McLennan Archdiocesan Youth Committee. The goal of this committee is to encourage and support youth to become involved in masses, the Parish, and the Archdiocese. Additionally, for many years she has faithfully given of her time to serve in the Children’s Liturgy Ministry and as a Eucharisitc Minister. She is a role model for many staff and students at St. Andrew’s School.

More recently, Amy has continued to selflessly support St. Paul’s Parish by taking up the role of Parish COVID 19 Safety Coordination Team leader. In this role she has supported the Glass Door Covid initiative that supports safe arrival and attendance for parishioners.

The Excellence in Catholic Education Award is annually awarded to a certified Catholic teacher who has done an exemplary job in preparing our youth to grow into outstanding Catholic citizens. The award winner must be passionate about Catholic education and the students they teach, inspire their students, and demonstrate commitment to Catholic education and teaching excellence.

HFCRD and the St. Andrew’s School community are blessed to have such a faithful witness who commits to excellence in Catholic education. Congratulations Amy!

Let us pray in solidarity for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine

God of infinite mercy and goodness, with grateful hearts we pray to you today for Peace. You offer us your peace continually (Jn.14:27) and constantly remind us that peacemakers are blessed, “for they shall be called children of God” (Mt.5:9). May your voice resound in the hearts of all, as you call us to follow the path of reconciliation and peace, and to be merciful as you are merciful.

We pray to you for the people of the Ukraine who are experiencing conflicts and deaths. Bless the leaders with wisdom, vision and perseverance needed to build together a world of justice and solidarity, and to break down walls of hostility and division.
To you we entrust all families and pray that they may never yield to discouragement and despair, but become heralds of new hope to one another in this challenging time.

May you continue to inspire all of us to oneness of heart and mind, to work generously for the common good, to respect the dignity of every person and the fundamental rights which have their origin in the image and likeness of God impressed upon every human being.
Grant eternal rest to the dead and quick recovery to the wounded, we pray through Christ our Lord, Amen!
