Parent Portal for Report Card Access

OCSB Learning Technologies is introducing the parent portal. This tool will allow parents to access their children’s report cards online, in addition to other student information.

A phone call was sent to all families on June 12th with missing email addresses, asking them to go to ocsb.ca/parentportal to complete a form and provide contact information. Next week, all parents will receive an email instructing them how to create an account to access the portal. Additional staff have been hired to provide support to parents during this initiative.  Look for the email next week. Thank you.

First Communion Letter from Archbishop Terrence Prendergast

posted May 25, 2020, 7:55 AM by Stephen Gay

Spring 2020

To you, dear child waiting for your First Communion,

In the past few weeks, your life and your parish’s life is very different.  I am writing to you because you were going to make First Holy Communion
around this time. You can certainly see why we have to delay this special event.  When we do come back to church, your parish priest will announce a new date for your First Holy Communion.  In the meantime, I invite you to pray each day in order to prepare yourself for
this special meeting with Jesus.

God bless you and your family.

✠Terrence Prendergast, S.J.
Archbishop of Ottawa-Cornwall

Confirmation Letter from Archbishop Terrence Prendergast

posted May 25, 2020, 7:52 AM by Stephen Gay

Pentecost, May 31, 2020

Dearest Confirmation Candidates,

The restrictions of the pandemic have sadly postponed the celebration of your Confirmation. With your parish priest, your teachers and family, I share in your disappointment. And we all eagerly look forward to that joyful day when it will be possible to anoint you and to seal you with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Be assured that that day will come in the early fall or perhaps a little bit later.  In the meantime, remember that since your Baptism the Spirit of God lives within you—always ready to guide, encourage, comfort and challenge you. The Holy Spirit gives you courage to face today’s difficult situations. You are never alone! 

Spend time with the Holy Spirit in prayer and ask Him to fill you with his peace.  Dear young people, we are praying for you. You are special followers of Christ, precious witnesses of the love of God in an anxious world. Jesus wants to confirm you so you can be his ambassadors in our world today. Be steadfast as you continue on your journey of faith toward Confirmation and the incredible life God has planned for you!

We miss your smiling faces and truly desire to see you soon!

✠Terrence Prendergast, S.J.
Archbishop of Ottawa-Cornwall

In our period of distancing and isolation, we thought that perhaps your students could benefit from some fire safety activities that they can do at home and online.
