"THE MIND CAN ONLY ABSORB WHAT THE SEAT CAN ENDURE..." and the chairs we have have aren't helping in that department!!!
Please help us to raise the funds needed to replace our 1950's-era plywood CHAIRS that we use for events. We strive to provide an environment where people can grow deeper in their faith and knowledge— and we know that we can do this very well!—but, "the mind can only absorb what the seat can endure," and we know that replacing our old chairs is one "little thing" that we can do to make the learning experience more fruitful for our students and guests.
But... WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO IT!!!
Please donate towards our CHAIRitable Campaign at www.StTherese.ca/Chairs, by calling 1(306)369.2555.
Your donation, whether $10 or $1000, helps us move towards this goal. And you can also help us out by **SHARING** this post on your Wall, and with friends or businesses that may be willing to help!
St. Therese is a registered Canadian charitable organization and we are thus able to issue tax receipts for eligable donations. Or, if you are donating to us through Facebook, then your tax receipt will be issed via Facebook and the PayPal Giving Fund.
Our ultimate goal is 200 padded "banquet"-style chairs. Current quotes are currently sitting $33.00-$38.00 per chair (add taxes and delivery and that's about $45.00-$48.50 per chair or $9,000-$9,700 total). Yes, that is a lot of money, but anyone who has sat in the old rough-edged, duct-taped-up chairs can attest to this need!
Please donate towards our CHAIRitable Campaign at www.StTherese.ca/Chairs, by calling 1(306)369.2555. Tax receipts are available.
This campaign was launched on #GivingTuesday 2019 :) The conference "last weekend" was our Advent Conference with D.r Mary Healy (Nov. 29-Dec. 1).
I would like to extend greetings on behalf of the Board of Directors.
It was on November 9th, 1919 that the Ursuline Sisters of Bruno held the grand opening celebration for the newly built Ursuline Convent. One might picture that it was a beautiful fall day, with a jovial crowd filled with high expectations for the future of the school. The Ursuline Sisters, many of whom are laid to rest in the nearby cemetery, must be very pleased that their legacy continues to this day.
The Spring/Summer 2019 edition of the little way magazine is here!
Christ is Alive! He is our hope! Find out what this means to our staff and students as they live our the call to holiness, the little way, and a devotion to the St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus & the Holy Face.
