Canned Food Miracle!!

St Mary students did it again!!! The Advent Canned Food drive brought in a whopping record-breaking
36 290 items for the Brockville food bank. It's AMAZING!! There are only 750 students in the whole school!
Every year the students show me the meaning of compassion. I understand why God chose a teenage woman to be the mother of Jesus. Teenagers give themselves so fully and with such creativity to their ideals. Working with them is a blessing, and a constant reminder that we are called to live for and with the other - the stranger, the poor, the forgotten. And that we're meant to enjoy the journey! (The pictures show students sorting food in the chapel, and a group busking for cans outside the local grocery store on a Saturday morning - yes, Saturday!)
