Cat Chat comes to Beaumont and Wetaskiwin
The importance of bringing students in our care into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is at the core of the work we do at STAR Catholic Schools. To support this important work, the STAR Catholic Board allocated funds to schools in the Division to assist schools in promoting the evangelization and/or catechesis of their students.
Two schools that applied for the grant money, Sacred Heart School in Wetaskiwin, and Académie Saint-André Academy in Beaumont, used their funds to host “Cat Chat Concert – The Catholic Audio Show” at their schools. The events help kids and families experience Jesus through the beauty and richness of the Catholic faith in a fun and faith-filled way.
Making more than a one-time impact on the school communities, the Cat Chat songs and other materials will be used on the schools on an ongoing basis, and Académie Saint–André Academy staff plan to host another Cat Chat event at their new school building during the 2014-14 school year.
