An homage of vigils throughout April

In April, every school in the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board held some version of a social justice vigil – honouring the 20 years of the Friday noon vigil undertaken by the Sisters of Providence with many others from the community.These actions ranged from large-scale public vigils (see the Belleville article) to smaller acts with smaller kids. Two schools with long ties to the Sisters invited them to the Masses held in conjunction with the vigil. And the Sisters were also invited to the Board’s Mass at the Cathedral as part of Catholic Education Week, earlier this month, where a video of the vigils was shown. Here are a number of links to share what happened.
