Headmaster's Lenten Message

Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of the Lenten season.  During this liturgical season we prepare for Easter by imitating Jesus and going out into the "desert" to pray and sacrifice.  Lent lasts forty days (with the exception of Sundays) and during this Lenten season you will notice students learning about the meaning of Lent and the various Lenten practices we traditionally follow, guiding us through this journey. It is a season of prayer, giving, abstaining, and fasting.  One way students are giving is by bringing in loose change for our penny drive (doesn’t have to be pennies).  All procee...

School Prayer Service Seeks Intercession of Patron to Youth

We capped off Catholic Schools week with a prayer service. Students across all grade levels prepared original general intercessions, a decade of the rosary was prayed, and we also reflected on the life of an exceptionally selfless and tireless servant to youth: St. John Bosco. It was very fitting that St. John Bosco's memorial marked the end of Catholic Schools week. His life was a total self-donation to young people who desperately needed and thirsted for the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.  Our prayer is that Mount Royal Academy will continue to bring more and more youthful souls to Chri...

Annual All Saints Celebration Emphasizes the Good

We are celebrating All Saint’s Day tomorrow, November 1st. This has been a tradition at Mount Royal Academy for the past nineteen years. Sometimes students ask why we don’t celebrate Halloween at school. My response to the little ones has been that we like to dress up as saints so that we can learn to be more like them, which will help us be closer to Jesus. It is a simple answer yet very true as we want our children to see the beauty in virtue, and see examples of people who have striven to live a life in Christ and been recognized by the Church as saints. The three days of All Hallow’s Eve (...

Online Safety Seminar for Parents

Within the last couple decades a new continent has been discovered: the digital continent. The world of social and online media is growing rapidly.

They are extreme users of social media. As adults who care about the eternal, spiritual, and moral well-being of all children, we think that is it very important for parents to know the dangers of the digital continent. The world of digital media and social n...
