Catholic Girls League, Read

March 23, 2018

CGL Read.jpgThe Catholic Girls League in Read tries to promote the idea of giving back to their school, community and parish,  and that's exactly what they've been doing. 

Within their parish, these girls help with CWL events, church services, and visiting the local nursing home. This year, students made Christmas cards for every single resident at the local nursing home and were delivered on Christmas Day.

In addition, each year the girls pick a charity within the community. Last year, they picked two charities, raising $100 for the pediatric floor of the Belleville General Hospital, and $265 (and many supplies)  for the Napanee Humane Society. 

The motto of the Catholic Girl's League is "faith, friendship, fun and formation." This group is for girls aged 10-15 and meetings are held at St. Mary Catholic School in Read over their lunch hour. Girls are welcome to be part of the group after they complete Grade 8 and many participate outside of school and in community activities. 

Congratulations to the Catholic Girls League in Read! Your actions demonstrate the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board's theme, "Faith in Action."

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
