2017-2018 SCHOOL OPENING MASS Thursday, August 31, 2017
Seating begins at 8:15AM and Mass begins at 8:55AM
The Edmonton Catholic School District and the Edmonton Catholic Teachers Local 54 invite all present and former staff to attend our 2017-2018 School Opening Mass. “How beautiful the hands that served the wine and the bread and the sons of the earth…how beautiful is the body of Christ.” (Lyrics “How Beautiful”
How beautiful is our School Opening Mass when we gather as a community and break bread together! We continue to celebrate the growth of our District. Our School Opening Mass committee was excited to be witness to the increasing attendance at our mass. The committee explored the idea of an additional spiritual and sacred space to begin the school year in communion with one another. With much thought and consideration, it was decided to celebrate Mass in four (4) faith communities- St. Charles Church, Corpus Christi Church, St. Thomas More Church and St. Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral. The capacity of each church was important and taken into consideration. We are grateful and sincerely appreciate the hospitality of these four parishes as they welcome us into their communities.
