Fr. Gus, pastor of St. Mary Parish, Carleton Place has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is now on leave from the parish to focus on his health and undergo chemotherapy treatments. Many of our St. Gregory, Notre Dame and St. Mary families know Fr. Gus through his work in our schools and in the parish. Fr. Gus has given his time, energy and resources to parishioners, school children and our community and now it is our turn to show our appreciation and let him know we are praying for him. Anyone wishing to send cards or well wishes to Fr. Gus can do so by dropping off material to the parish office at St. Mary Church in Carleton Place or to the office at St. Gregory. Please keep this wonderful man and model of Christian grace in your prayers.
Here are a few pictures of our Grade 3’s enjoying their time at the Camp in Dunrobin. It was a wet and cool day but the kids made the best of it!

St. Gregory raised $10 400 this year for the Heart and Stroke Foundation! Well done!
Thank you to everyone who helped out with Jump Rope for Heart. Mother Nature has a great sense of humour and we had to delay the event one week but this week all of the students were able to get out and jump! Thank you to the volunteers who came, all the students who collected money and jumped and to our teachers! A very special thank you to Mrs. Brooks who has helped organize this event at St. Gregory for the past several years. You will be missed next year Mrs. Brooks!!

We are at a time in our province when we need to come together in conversation, gathering as a community to name and understand the challenges presented by an increasingly complex and secular society and to identify and build consensus around the opportunities that will shape our future.
Members of the community are invited to share their thoughts about contemporary issues in Catholic education. Your unique perspective will assist us in better understanding the challenges and opportunities for our Catholic schools and the students who attend them. Please take time to share your ideas and access the survey at:
Today at St. Gregory we were honoured to have the Jump Rope for Heart demo team here. They performed for the school and really inspired us all to get jumping! Along with the demo team was the current National Skipping Champion – Chad LeCoure! Fantastic!
A huge thank you to all who have sent in food for the food drive and money to buy bricks to build our school – Matt’s Dream. We will publish numbers after Easter but look and see what we have built so far:
