Dear Crusaders,

We are so excited to have the Pilgrimage Cross at Canadian Martyrs!  This is a 7 foot cross that has been travelling throughout the Waterloo Catholic Schools for a year!  It is finally our turn!

On Friday, November 16, 2018 the staff welcomed the cross to our school by carrying it through the hallways into the library.  There it stands, and we were already able to spend some time with the cross in quiet meditation.  What an experience!  On Monday and Tuesday, each student will have their time with the cross as a class and have the opportunity to think about what it means to have it here and what it can mean for us when it moves on.

On Wednesday at 11:00am, our Grade 7’s, who are on their own journey this year, will walk the cross to Shantz Park.  There, we will be met by the Grade 7 students from St. Anne’s Catholic School and we will pass off the cross to them.  This procession will start outside Canadian Martyrs as the rest of the students will make a line for us to walk by.  We would love for YOU to be a part of that line!  Please come to Canadian Martyrs on Wednesday, November 21st to be a part of the experience.  You can see the cross as it leaves our school and be a part of the crowd wishing it well.  No need to RSVP, just join us!

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Have a great week Crusaders!
