Chaplain's corner

St. Francis is a place where our Christian values are present in word and deed. Students are given many opportunities to explore their Catholic faith in a spiritually supportive environment. Full day RETREATS are offered for each grade level, giving students a chance to see their faith as an experience to be lived daily.

LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES are available for students as group leaders on St. Francis school retreats as well as the SCOEP program at Loretto Christian Centre. Through these experiences students are encouraged to share their own faith experience with other students.

MASSES and PRAYER SERVICES throughout the year give our students an opportunity to pray together in small and large gatherings.

SOCIAL JUSTICE is a key element at St. Francis, as we encourage our students to behave justly toward one another on the personal level, but also to become more aware of justice issues around the world. PILGRIMAGE is our annual effort to raise awareness of Third World needs, with participation increasing every year. Other efforts have included a soap drive, Starvathon, Backpacks for Haiti, and preparing Christmas baskets for our local community.
