Our Stained Glass

You probably have noticed the stained glass window of the Resurrection. This will be in place during the Easter Season until the feast of the Ascension in May. Last Monday, was the feast of the Annunciation so we will have that window in place for the week.

Congratulations, Alex!

Congratulations to Alexander Seredenko, our pianist for the Children’s Choir at the 12:30 PM Mass. Alex, a student at the Glenn Gould School, won first prize at a prestigious piano competition held by the International Piano Academy in Japan, competing against 29 other pianists from Japan, Korea, China, France, Poland, Ukraine and the United States.

Alex is the first Canadian to win top honours at the competition.

“This is a great achievement and a tremendous confidence boost for Alex,” said James Anagnoson, Dean
of the Royal Conservatory’s Glenn Gould School.
