Please join us for our last tune up before the playoffs this upcoming Wednesday, as we will compete against Jesse Remington at home. Kickoff is set for 3:00pm.
Jesse Remington is the second place team in our league. We nearly stole the show when we traveled to their field earlier in the season, almost overcoming a 3-0 deficit in the final 5 minutes of the game. We stand in 3rd place currently, but need to gather and retain some confidence against the higher ranked teams in our league.
We also would like to make another plea for spiritual support. Our student-athletes have tried tremendously ha...Read More
Today is a special day at Mount Royal Academy. After a few academic lessons during the morning we will celebrate Mass on this holy day, and then proceed onward to our annual All Saints festivities. Stay tuned for a brief reflection on this glorious occasion later in the day!Read More
Below, a description from their website expresses the distinctiveness of the type of service our students will be performing:
"We serve hundreds of people every day, with a small core staff and a large army of generous volunteers. We opened the doors of the Cor Unum Meal Center on September 30, 2006 and in our first four years we served over 650,000 guests! At the current rate of meal service, approximately 200,000 meals are served annually at Cor Unum.
Cor Unum ...Read More
Just a reminder: the entire Upper School will be traveling to Boston, Massachusetts to embark upon the famous Freedom Trail on this upcoming Thursday. Each grade level is studying some form of United States History, and with the sites of the American Revolution so close to our area, how could we not take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity?
We welcome some extra prayers for the safety and protection of our students as we travel, and that they may be roused to seek true freedom through Christ as they learn about how our political freedom was won for us centuries ago.Read More
As All Saints Day nears, a day proclaimed to be especially holy in the liturgical calendar, our school began its annual preparations in honor of this special day. This is yet another distinctive feature of the Mount Royal charism, as we aim to celebrate the glory of God and the saints, in stark juxtaposition against the deceitfulness and malice of some of the more popular cultural traditions.
We are re-implementing the Big Buddy, Little Buddy program this year. All of the upper grade level students are paired with lower grade level students, where they converse about the life of the saint, pre...Read More
With only 3 games overall left in the schedule - 1 exhibition and 2 league matches - the Knights are nearing the postseason. We posted a 1-1 record during the last week, thus settling us at 4-5-1 overall and 4-4 in league play. We will most likely finish in either 3rd or 4th place, which we give us the privilege of hosting a 1st round playoff match against a lower seed.
On Monday we competed against RSEC Academy, and finished with a 2-1 victory in what became a very hard fought battle. We were without some key forwards, thereby hindering our offensive explosiveness. However, Jason Fraioli and ...Read More
Why do families entrust their children to Catholic schools? The following reflection by David G. Bonagura Jr., published over at CatholicThing.org very aptly summarizes the main purpose of Catholic education.
We share this with you because many families involved in Catholic education sacrifice a great deal to send their children to a school such as ours. These are profound words of encouragement that ought to strengthen and solidify our resolve to continue pressing forward with the overall mission of our school: the total and complete formation of the embodied soul - the human person.
Yesterday, October 17th, 2010, the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Blessed Brother Andre Bessette of St. Joseph's Oratory was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI, along with five other saints. We are truly in a period of saints, as more saints have been canonized by Pope John Paul II and Benedict than all other Holy Fathers in history - COMBINED!
The name of our school is spiritually joined to the famous mount upon which St. Joseph's Oratory was constructed. A basilica now towers over Montreal on that very location, the fruit of Saint Andre's lifelong labors of healing the physically and spiritually...Read More
Over this past week the Knights have demonstrated a rapid improvement in their overall performance. The trials of the earlier part of the season have certainly borne fruit, made visible in our efforts against Jesse Remington and Parker Academy. These games, and all of our upcoming league games for that matter, are absolutely crucial for tournament seeding. We are striving for at least one home playoff game as a way to thank all of our supporters who have been there throughout the season.
Although the scoreboard indicated a loss against Jesse Remington - by a score of 2-3 - it was a win in our ...Read More
