President’s update – July 2022
Summer has officially arrived, and I hope everyone is taking advantage of the warm weather and spending time with family and friends. If you have a story to share about your summer experiences, let us know and we will be happy to publish it on our website.
Ciscily Winkler did a great presentation on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action, addressing the legacy of Canada's residential school system, and the ongoing process to reconciliation. Thank you, Ciscily, for enlightening us and helping us understand the issues faced by Indigenous peoples.
The St Patrick’s CWL is proud to announce the winners of the 2022 Mary Dobell Student Writing Awards. Joakim placed first in the Intermediate poetry division with his moving piece Dead Dreams. Isla placed first in the Intermediate essay division with her essay on What Equality for All Means. Both Joakim and Isla are Grade 8 students at San Lorenzo Ruiz CES. We thank Principal Mr. Schirripa and the Intermediate staff for their enthusiastic support and for allowing us to make the big announcement live via Google Meet. Isla placed second at the Regional level and third at the Diocesan level. Joakim placed third at the Regional level. We would like to congratulate both students for their achievements. Thank you, Cindy, for helping promote the event.
The CWL summer BBQ was well attended, and members took the opportunity to meet and greet people face to face. Thank you to Edgar and Tania for hosting us in their beautiful backyard. There was plenty of food, laughter, and fun. Thank you to all the members who contributed appetizers, drinks, and desserts. We were happy to have Fr. Dominic, Fr. JiHwan and Marlon attend the BBQ. We will cherish the memories created by this event and hope to continue with this tradition annually.
Fr. JiHwan and Marlon will be leaving the parish at the end of July. We would like to wish Fr. JiHwan and Marlon all the best in their future endeavours.
