On St. Patrick’s Day the Kingston CND’s celebrated the March birthdays of five sisters. The afternoon began with the shout “HEAR YE, HEAR YE” of the town crier regaled in Irish greens and calling all Congregation of Notre Dame Sisters in the name of the King of Limerick and rhyme to join in the fun of celebrating the five March birthdays and honouring the dear Saint himself.

LAND: we are planting a school garden, butterflies for the youngest students, vegetables for P.O.T.S., flowers for Providence Rest, herbs for the kitchen, a berry patch for birds, and a heritage garden for our historical significance. Gardening has many positive impacts on learning, heath and community.
Earth Hour is an annual event on the last Saturday in March in which people around the world turn their lights off for one hour. Earth Hour began ten years ago in Sydney, Australia. Since then, businesses, government organizations, communities and political leaders have taken part. It’s a small way of giving people everywhere a voice in supporting efforts to maintain a low carbon future for our planet. In previous Earth Hour observances, landmark buildings throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas have stood in darkness for one hour. In Canada, look for Earth Hour to be observed 8:30 - 9:30 pm Saturday evening. (Choose another hour, if it works better for you.) Our actions today will define our tomorrow. See https://www.earthhour.org/ for 2-3 minute video clip.
We are dedicated to our mission of liberating education
through prayer, work and community.
We follow Jesus, the Light
of the world.
