All Saints Blog Week of March 5th, 2018

Diefenbooker Race 
The 22nd annual Diefenbooker Race will take place on Saturday May 5, 2018. The funds raised support organizations in West Carleton that promote literacy, encourage physical activity or personal wellness. The Diefenbooker promotes community fun, as well as serious racing.

There are events for all ages including:
5 and 10 km running races,
5 km walk,
5, 18 and 33 km cycle tours, youth events, including: 
a 1 km running race for 12 years old and under, a "Loonie Loop" short races for 2 to 6 yrs old.

The organizers are offering an opportunity for funds to schools that our Carp youth attend. Many of our youth go to All Saints High School. The Diefenbooker raises money to support literacy. This year we are excited to announce a new program. A trophy and cash prize of $2000. will be awarded to the school that has the largest percentage of its’ population participate in the Diefenbooker (whether it be walking, running, cycling, or volunteering)

Liturgical Season of Lent
From the Diocese of Ottawa: In the Catholic faith, God often uses how humans perceive the physical world to impart something spiritual. He uses the seasons of the year to ingrain divine lessons. One such season is Lent. The liturgical cycle invites you not to just read the Scriptures, but to live them. You can experience biblical history and Jesus’ earthly life through the sacraments, sacramentals, celebrations, and times of fasting.

Lent is an opportunity for transformation, inviting us to take a closer look at our own lives and make changes that bring us closer to God. Please visit the Archdiocese of Ottawa webpage for further information

All Saints Dominican Experience

We welcome back our All Saints Dominican Republic Experience group this week. We thank you for the work you have done in the name of our school community.

Student Fundraiser
A group of our All Saints Grade 12 students has organized a fundraiser selling locally grown Haitian coffee from Singing Rooster: a social non-profit enterprise which helps alleviate poverty in Haiti through fair trade. All proceeds from the selling of coffee will go directly to Kids Connection Haiti. This charity helps Haitian orphans transition from institutions to independent lives. All sales will take place through school cash online. Ground and Whole bean varieties are available in medium, dark and decaf. As a huge incentive, for every bag of coffee a student sells, he/she will have his or her name placed into a draw for 2 Air Canada Tickets to anywhere in North America. Students are encouraged to purchase coffee for parents, family and friends. All coffee will be delivered to students in their homeroom classroom later in March.
