Gathering Stone Ritual

Father Hutton and parent Brenda Cavallin help collect the stones with St. Christopher students Austin Hill, Jeffrey Toulouse and Noah Forteski.

May 21, 2012 - On May 17 Father Jim Hutton and parent Brenda Cavallin travelled to three of the Sudbury Catholic District Schools that are closing in June - St. Theresa, St. Christopher and Corpus Christi. Students at each of these schools collected stones from the yard to symbolize something they wanted to bring to the new site of Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School opening in September. The stones will be placed in the yard but will represent the spirit of the school that have travelled from all three sites. With Father Him Hutton and Brenda Cavallin's visit to each of the schools, students were invited to remember love, patience and the virtues they hold true at their school while holding onto the stone. The stones were then collected and brought to St. Patrick's Parish to be stored until the students begin their new school year at Holy Cross.
