A Prayer for the Lenten Season

Lord God, you who established a lasting covenant with me, help me to be faithful to my promises to you. Help me to find my way back to you. Help me to work hard this Lent and to serve others as your son Jesus did. 



Lenten Message

Dear Wolfpack families, during this Lenten season, we ask that you continue to be kind to yourself, and take time to reflect on the year that was. Please continue to give thanks for the health of your family and friends. Thank you for your continued witness to our faith, and our wonderful school community. 

Virtual Family Fun Night!  


          Mark your calendar everyone! We, your Catholic School Council , are very excited to put the Magic back into the Month of March by hosting our first VIRTUAL Family Fun Night! Join the STM community on Thursday March 18th from 6:30-7:30pm for an evening of magic and pizza (what could be better!). Ottawa magician Chris Pilsworth will be entertaining us starting at 6:30pm. Grab some pizza from our friends at Domino's - they've provided us with some great promos (please see both of the flyers below).  And don’t worry Wolfpack families if you miss our Magical evening, every family at St.Thomas More including our Wolfpack Virtual families will have their name put into our Friday draw with a chance to win some wonderful prizes.  The zoom link for our Magical evening will be sent out by Mr. Risto on March 18th, before the event. We hope to see you all there!
