Finding a new home within the Catholic Family. This film was the creation of International Students who came to Canada to study at Blessed Cardinal Newman. This film demonstrates the love and caring within our Catholic community that not only supports the new student but provides a new extended family. The students have been in Canada only 4 months to 2 years. They greatly appreciate the support they receive from their new family members.
