Ash Wednesday Ceremony – Traditional Twist

Monday, February 23

Guest Speaker – Chris Koch

35-year-old Chris Koch from Nanton, Alberta was born without arms or legs, but that hasn’t stopped him from fulfilling his dream of becoming a farmer. Chris says, “I want to use my life to inspire and motivate others. I also want to give people a good laugh, too — if you can’t laugh at life, what can you laugh at?” Chris’ inspirational story is a testament to all those who despite great odds, reach their goals and dreams.

District Faith Theme

The greatest promise for all of our students this year will be a new faith theme. Along with the other schools in our district, we at VJM are, Shepherding Our Flock … Called to Love One Another . To this end, VJM will continue its proud legacy of focusing on community service and social justice projects, as well as exploring ways to enhance faith discovery within the classroom and celebrations that are held throughout the school year.
