Toronto Catholic District School Board

School History And Tradition
 
Holy Redeemer Catholic School is a title applied to Christ who liberated all by sacrificing His Precious Blood on the cross. The hope for a Redeemer was emphasized throughout the Old Testament. The universality of the Messianic Kingdom is a divine gift enabling everyone in the world to be reconciled to God. The suffering and death of Jesus brought about the redemption of the entire human race.
 
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life.” - John 3:16
 
Through the liturgy Christ, our Redeemer and High Priest, continues the work of our redemption in, with and through the Church.
 
Holy Redeemer Catholic School opened in 1973, temporarily sharing space with St. Leonard School before opening its doors. The official opening and blessing of the school was on April 27, 1974. In 1998 the school celebrated its 25th anniversary, remembering past joys and successes. In 2003 the community selected the motto “Knowledge and Faith”. This motto forms the framework of Holy Redeemer’s rich tradition. In 2004, the Holy Redeemer website is born.
 
Holy Redeemer Catholic School under the patronage of the crucifix of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, continues its mission to motivate all students to achieve their full potential in mind, body and spirit through a well balanced program rooted in Gospel Values.
