1 May 1 st, 2013 Msgr. Fraser Norfinch Welcome New TCDSB SHSM Programs

2 Prayer In a world which ignores the human thirst for God… we are called to share the living waters of faith. In a time when there is little reverence for the image of God in the human person… we are summoned to care for human life with ultimate respect. In a culture where communication is increasingly commercialized… we are invited to prayer and worship. In a world marked by personality cults… we are called to bear witness to Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord and to reverence Him in the poor, the lowly and the marginalized. In a time which often seems to be without goals or ennobling aspirations… we are called to declare goals and values to dedicate lives to their achievement. ~Amen
