Yesterday, we entered the second week of Advent. This week we light the candle signifying love, and we will continue to explore the theme of Encountering Christ.
Thank you for blessing each of us with the gift of Your love.
You showed us this love
through the birth, life, death, and resurrection
of Your son, Jesus.
Continue to teach us how to share Your love with our families.
Allow us to use Jesus and his Holy Family,
as role models of faith and love.

Are you passionate about creating awareness and pursuing reconciliation in your community? Join the Reconciliation Project with CBYF Prince Albert! Open to students in grades 10-12, the task is for students to research their own culture, or another culture of their choice, and create a bridge between colonial experiences in Canada and worldwide. This will include understanding the historical facts of real events, how those events have affected cultural groups, and what that means for reconciliation efforts and pursuing a healthy dialogue and healing. Students are to create a three-part project and incorporate their ideas and research into:
(1) a video or essay to present your research
(2) an art piece that will represent your chosen research culture and the pursuit of reconciliation, and
(3) a short story or poem that will support your art piece.
