CSW: Mary, Queen of Peace and Mother of Hope

Dear Families, I hope and pray that all of you enjoyed your Christmas vacation. Our family took down the Christmas tree on the feast of the Epiphany, but then I was quickly reminded by a faithful student on Monday that the Baptism of the Lord marks the definitive ending of the Christmas season. The dates can vary depending on how the liturgical calendar falls in the monthly calendar, but the wisdom of this intentional celebration by the Church should not be overlooked. I am always impressed with how our academic calendar fittingly extends from the liturgical calendar. For exampl...

Annual All Saints Celebration Emphasizes the Good

We are celebrating All Saint’s Day tomorrow, November 1st. This has been a tradition at Mount Royal Academy for the past nineteen years. Sometimes students ask why we don’t celebrate Halloween at school. My response to the little ones has been that we like to dress up as saints so that we can learn to be more like them, which will help us be closer to Jesus. It is a simple answer yet very true as we want our children to see the beauty in virtue, and see examples of people who have striven to live a life in Christ and been recognized by the Church as saints.

Within the last couple decades a new continent has been discovered: the digital continent. The world of social and online media is growing rapidly. New mediums of communication are introduced so quickly that the average user can find it difficult to track the developing forms of online social connection. Adolescents are NOT average users. They are extreme users of social media. As adults who care about the eternal, spiritual, and moral well-being of all children, we think that is it very important for parents to know the dangers of the digital continent. The world of digital media and social n...
