Prayers for Ukraine
Together as a Catholic community, we continue to pray for the people of Ukraine and stand in solidarity. In support of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters, we prepared the following liturgy for our schools.
We stand in solidarity with our Ukrainian community, who since the early 1890s, have demonstrated a strong sense of history. Their contributions to the Province of Alberta and the Edmonton Catholic School Division have been significant, with the Ukrainian Bilingual Program celebrating its 40th anniversary in April of 2015.
Our Critical Response Team will be coordinating visits with our Ukrainian schools to offer support to our students and staff.
The health and well-being of all ECSD staff remains a priority. Edmonton Catholic Schools has worked in partnership with Homewood Health for many years to provide employees and their immediate family members with a variety of counselling, coaching, and online resources. Counselling is available in person, by phone or online at no cost to our employees. Please do not hesitate to reach out to homewoodhealth.com for support or by calling 1-800-663-1142. More resources can me found for staff on our sharepoint page.
As Catholics, we always help those in need; the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is in desperate need of our support and solidarity at this time.
