LOCCS donates to Catholic Family Services

Each school year, Light of Christ Catholic Schools celebrates with an opening Mass. This year was no exception. The opening Mass was planned by Holy Family School staff for all staff throughout the school division. A special collection was taken for Catholic Family Services of the Battlefords resulting in a donation of $428.65. Catholic Family Services works in partnership with our schools to offer professional counselling and support services to families. The purpose is to assist students and their families to build on their strengths and find positive ways to understand and act when faced with challenges in their lives. The positive partnership between LOCCS and CFS helps schools to ensure that students who struggle can develop the strength, resilience, persistence, and understanding to succeed in school, in their personal lives, and in the future.
