Theodore Public School closed its doors in 2003. Too small to keep open said the local board. Students were to be bussed to another town.
The locals decided they wanted to have a school in town so they applied to the provincial government to establish a Catholic School and the government said OK. St. Theodore was born.
Well, that didn’t sit well with the folks who closed the public school so a lawsuit was launched that claimed, first, Catholic schools should not be allowed to accept non-Catholic students and, second the government shouldn’t pay for those students.
You’ll get more detail in a story elsewhere on this site. This is more about what happens if the case is successful.Read More
Mother Teresa Middle School (MTMS) now has the official endorsement of the Jesuits of the English Province of Canada. While MTMS is based on Nativity Miguel Middle schools founded in the United States by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) MTMS here was not sponsored by Canadian Jesuits. Its administration and faculty are lay people although Jesuits in training do volunteer at the school. “It links us officially to the network (Jesuit schools) in Canada, it also links us to the schools in the U.S,” said MTMS Director of Education Curtis Kleisinger in an interview. The endorsement agreement was signed by Provincial for English Canada Reverend Peter Bisson S.J. and MTMS Board Chair Paul Hill at a special event held November 30 at the school.Read More

The Most Reverend Douglas Crosby, O.M.I., Bishop of Hamilton and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), has sent a letter conveying condolences and prayers to His Eminence André Cardinal Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris, following the tragic attacks that occurred in Paris, November 13, 2015. In his letter, Bishop Crosby writes that, in union with Pope Francis, Cardinal Vingt-Trois and the other Bishops of France, "we join our voices with those of other religious leaders who remind the world that peace, respect for the human person, and integral human development remain essential criteria for all religions and their faithful."

The swearing in of the new federal cabinet had more evidence that Canada is, more and more, turning into a secular society.
I didn’t watch the entire ceremony and I did notice of the group who took the oath/promise of office most did say So Help Me God at the end of the oath but a significant number made no such declaration. Instead they used words, swear and promise. I understand those are acceptable in today’s society but to me and I’m sure many others, those words do not convey the same obligation as So Help Me God and it’s further evidence that our country is in transition to dismiss a reliance on God or for that matter on a single deity, well, except perhaps for Allah.Read More
