St. Benedict Students Lend a Helping Hand


May 21, 2012 - Students from St. Benedict teacher Krysten Purawec's Grade 9 French Immersion class prepared sandwiches for the Elgin Street Mission recently. Twenty-seven students made more than 125 sandwiches, carefully packaged with homemade cookies and a brief note of encouragement. Mme Purawec commented that, "It is our collective mission as a classroom to make our entire community a better place". The students had fun putting together the tasty snacks, which were delivered to the mission after school that day. Maurizio Visentin, a Guidance Counsellor at St. Benedict, shared a story on the origins of sandwiches and complimented the students on putting the gospel into action to help those who use the Mission on a daily basis.
