Holy Cross Sends their Prayers to Paris

The Holy Cross artwork has now been placed at the scene of the deadly attacks in Paris to bring some love from the students and staff of Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School.

December 2, 2015 - Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School grade two teacher Tania Fay has a personal connection to Paris. On of her friends -Glenn Gervot, lives just minutes away from where the recent Paris shootings took place. Wanting to do something, Fay led the entire Holy Cross staff and students to create a piece of art that she would send to her friend in France. The school took up the challenge and sent the finished product off to Paris as well as a flag with messages of peace to be shared with the people of France and all the visitors from around the world. Gervot was thankful to receive the artwork and brought to the location of the attacks.
"Today was the day to bring to one of the November 13th shootings in Paris (that is 10mn walk from our place and saw 19 persons die) a collection a hearts and warm thoughts from a school from Canada! Thank you Tania for sending us this beautiful collection, made by ALL students from your school. It is now in a good place and should fill the scene with warm feelings from Canada."
