On February 15, Josyf Cardinal Slipyj staff, student and parents commemorated their school patron, Josyf Cardinal Slipyj.  It has been 125 years since his birth, which falls on February 17th.


The commemoration began with Father Kachur performing a Moleben (paraliturgy).  The guest speaker and past principal of the school, Mr. Zyla, captivated the students with stories and a personal encounter with Josyf Cardinal Slipyj when he was in Toronto.  Afterwards, the grade 8 students presented a presentation on Josyf Cardinal Slipyj, his life, his faith, and his inspiration and motto for all of us to remember and live. The commemoration concluded with all students receiving a piece of cake to commemorate 125 years of Josyf Cardinal Slipyj.  All of the students and staff received a magnet with a picture of Josyf Cardinal Slipyj as a memory keepsake.
