East Central’s Tharin Fischer visits Christ King Catholic

CHRIST KING CATHOLIC SCHOOL — Within two weeks of March, Christ King Catholic School (CKCS) has a lot of fun events to look forward to, for this is the festive month!

Christ King Chargers boys’ basketball team went to CWAJHAA in Castor at Gus Wetter School on March 10 and 11. They won their first game against Spruce View with a score of 41-40. They lost their second game against Mecca Glen by eight points, also losing the bronze-medal game against Gus Wetter. They ended up in fourth place overall in the event. It was the first time CKCS attended CWAJHAA, which was very exciting.

East Central’s youth minister Tharin Fischer visited CKCS on March 14. He spent the day visiting each classroom and discussing the lent season. His activities included games, music and lots of fun.

On Friday, March 17, everyone at Christ King was encouraged to wear as much green as they could in honour of St. Patrick’s Day. The class with the most people wearing green won the Spirit Day Trophy, as well as treats. The winner of the event was Mrs. Gulak’s Grade 4/5 class.

CKCS also attended Mass on March 17. Father Don talked about the history of Saint Patrick, but also talked about envy and jealousy. Each of us have been given our own gifts and talents and therefore we should never envy another person for what they have been given. Afterwards, students and staff were treated to soup at the Parish Hall as one of their hot lunches.

Every Friday during the lent season, the Stations of the Cross are prayed at the church. The stations tell the story of Jesus’ journey from being arrested to being put to death on the cross. On Friday, March 17 CKCS led the Stations of the Cross at 7 p.m. They prayed a student-friendly version of the stations.
