SJA School Blessing

St. Joan of Arc Secondary School was blessed tonight by Archbishop Thomas Collins. It was a well-organized event. Unfortunately, Mayor Hazel McCallion couldn’t make it. As part of the committee, Francine was involved in the set up, decorations, ushering and lots of painting (see canvases on stage in photo below).

The state-of-the-art school/community library cost the city a whopping $33M! Thanks taxpayers!
