Toronto Catholic District School Board

The Magi  
 
Reflecting both our Catholic foundation, and the strength of our school, each House will be represented under the House name of one of the Magi.  Each Magi has his own story which will gradually unfold and evolve over the years as the story of each House is written.  Stories are told about the Kings (Magi) travelling from afar to bring gifts to the newborn King. This is how the Magi are often described:
 
Caspar, who has brown hair and a brown beard and wears a green cloak and a gold crown with green jewels on it. He is the King of Sheba. Gaspar represents the Frankincense brought to Jesus.
 
Melchior, who has long white hair and a white beard and wears a gold cloak. He is the King of Arabia. Melchior represents the Gold brought to Jesus.
 
Balthazar, who has a black beard and wears a purple cloak. He is the King of Tarse and Egypt. Balthazar represents the gift of Myrrh that was brought to Jesus.
 
But wait ... We have four houses - who represents the fourth house?
 
Most people know only of three wise men (Magi) making the journey to find the newborn King.  Yet, is it not possible that there was indeed a fourth magiQuite possible ... but, I leave the message as the truth to his story.
 
This is a story of  giving, perseverance, discipleship, and of helping others. 
 
His name was Artaban.
