Halton Catholic CDSB Celebrating the Gift of Our Families

“At this time, the Halton Catholic District School Board would like to celebrate the gift of our families. If this event has taught us anything, it is how interconnected we are and dependant on one another. Our faith tradition is of great inspiration and offers us an opportunity to put things into perspective. During this challenging time, families are encouraged to enjoy time creating moments and memories that will last a lifetime, most especially during this difficult situation. The following are resources to help integrate faith into your daily routine and continue through the season of Lent and into the joy of Easter:”

Loyola Press Coronavirus Response Lesson

To help schools and parishes provide continuity for their students and be constructively proactive no matter where children are spending their days, Loyola Press has created a special lesson as a companion to Growing with God: Safe and Sacred™ child safety and Catholic family living program.

This Coronavirus Response Lesson helps educators, catechists, or parents discuss the COVID-19 virus with children and teach them valuable skills. This lesson offers prevention and mitigation techniques based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance and includes a faith component to remind children of God’s unconditional love for them.

We hope these resources offer your community some comfort and hope during the current situation. Please feel free to send these resources to your community. For the most current information on the COVID-19 outbreak, please visit the CDC website.
