Christian Community Day 2016

Guest speaker Steve Pemberton inspired everyone at CC Day!

On October 7, the OCSB celebrated another inspiring Christian Community Day at a packed Shaw Centre! A major highlight of the day was the guest speaker, Steve Pemberton. His message truly brought the Board's spiritual theme to life by explaining how God brought special people into his life at various moments to be his "Good News." Despite the hardships he endured as a child, he was able to rise above the challenges and find success – and more importantly, people he could truly call family. Needless to say, everyone was deeply moved by his powerful presentation.

Another highlight was the beautiful mass presided over by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast. Director of Education Denise Andre's presentation was thoughtful and exciting. She focused on the Board's accomplishments and helped employees see how everyone at the OCSB, including custodians, play a significant role in helping our students learn in meaningful ways. Associate Director of Education, Tom D'Amico, presented the 2016 Distinguished Catholic Alumni Award to Bishop Christian Riesbeck who was unable to attend but sent his thoughts in a touching pre-recorded video.

The day was interspersed with the lovely music of the talented OCSB Choir filling everyone present with joy and wonder. All in all, it was a wonderful opportunity to bring our whole community together. See the pictures from the event in our Facebook album and Storify!
