Daily Events

  • Jesuit Heritage Days
  • The Life of St. Ignatius St. Ignatius, the founder of the Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits, was born in the Basque region of Spain in 1491 to a noble family and was a soldier for many years. One of his legs was seriously hurt by a cannonball in a battle in Pamplona, Spain. During his long period of recovery in Montserrat and Manresa, Spain, St. Ignatius only had books on the lives of Jesus and the saints to read. He underwent a spiritual conversion, and he decided to dedicate his life to serving God. After visiting the Holy Land and traveling around Spain, Ignatius decided to attend the University of Paris, where he eventually founded the Jesuit order, along with his early companions. After graduating from university, Ignatius spent many years in Rome as the Superior General of the Jesuit order, directing the members of the Society of Jesus to start schools and universities around the world, and to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to all people.

  • Ed Meagher Sports Tournament: Scorekeeper and DJ's
  • Many students and players are already signed up online to volunteer for next week's sports tournament. Please remember to check your email from Mr. Elie for instructions on signing up if you would like to help out. All hockey and basketball players are required to sign up for at least one time slot. The deadline for players to sign up is Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Please note that there are many incomplete sign ups because Mr. Elie is missing an email address or the student has not put their name in a specific spot or time. This can be done using the different tabs of the Google sheet shared with all students. There is a different tab for each of our locations, including the arena or either of the two gyms we are using for basketball. Contact or find Mr. Elie or Mr. Hurst for help.
  • Intramural Basketball (IBA)
  • Secondary III to V students who are interested in playing in the IBA this season can still do so at the Intramural Pillar. DEADLINE to sign up is Thursday, January 17th. If you have any questions please see Mr. Santillo.
  • Pee Wee Hockey Scouts Division 1
  • The Peewee Scouts D1 closed out the week on Friday with a win against John Rennie High School. The Scouts dominated early, setting a good tempo and out-shooting their opponent 50-8. Despite some lapses in team play, specifically not passing the puck enough, the Scouts capitalized on scoring opportunities and played a much more disciplined game. Congratulations to Petro Muratori for recording his second shutout of the season. The Scouts will travel to Heritage Regional this afternoon, the beginning of three back-to-back games this week. Please dismiss all team members at 1:30 p.m. Go Scouts!
