A Prayer for the Lenten Season

God, 

Please grant me a new freedom. A freedom to reject comparison to others and embrace what makes me special and unique. A freedom to avoid greed and share love and compassionA freedom to abstain from indulgence and develop more self-control. 


A freedom to become less selfish and to focus on the needs of others in my community. God, we thank you for the freedom you bring, during Lent and always. 

    Amen.



Lenten Message

         This year our STM Wolfpack Lenten Project will focus on acts of compassion in our community during the pandemic. We will continue to support families in need in our own communities through the Catholic Education Foundation of Ottawa (CEFO).   During Lent, our school will be having special theme days where students can participate in and show school spirit and an awareness of contributing to the common good. More information will come out closer to the dates on the theme for each spirit day. Any donation is welcomed by our Wolfpack community. Shortly you will be emailed our CEFO donation via School Cash Online. Thank you in advance for all your generosity in support of CEFO

Grade 2 Sacraments 

          Dear Grade 2 Wolfpack families and students that did not receive their sacraments last year. On behalf of The St. Bernard Sacramental Team, we would like to inform you that we are beginning preparations to hopefully offer the sacraments of  Reconciliation and First Communion to all students at St. Thomas More who may be interested in the coming months.

Please see the 2021 Reconciliation   and  First Communion Information sheet      and Registration Form .

For those students that register, a copy of the “We share the Eucharist” workbook will be provided to your child’s classroom teacher to help prepare our students for the sacraments. 

Hopefully an idea of how we can proceed during this difficult time of Covid 19 will happen shortly. As soon as we have a clearer picture of timelines and numbers, the information will be placed on the St.Bernard Parish  website and we will gladly share this with all parents and schools through personal emails provided on registration forms. The deadline to register is set for Friday March 26th.

We thank you all in advance for helping us in this endeavour!

God Bless!

St. Bernard's Sacramental Team
