A Christmas Message from our Headmaster

Merry Christmas!  It may sound like I am too late to be wishing you a Merry Christmas, however, it is important to remember that the Christmas Season begins on Christmas Day. “The Christmas season begins with the celebration of the birth of Jesus, Christmas day, or as a vigil on Christmas Eve. The Feast of Christmas lasts 12 days, until Epiphany. However, the time from Epiphany until the Baptism of the Lord is also included in the Christmas season. Traditionally, Epiphany had been fixed to January 6th, and the Baptism celebrated on the octave of Epiphany, which was January 13th. In most countr...

Pope Benedict Emphasizes Education & Youth in Message for World Day of Peace and Justice

January 1st is a treasured and solemn day in the liturgical calendar, for it is the day when the universal Church honors the special role of the Holy Mother of God, which is especially fitting as we continue our celebration of Christmas day. January 1st is also an important day in the secular calendar, as it marks the beginning of a new year. Pope John Paul II sought to engage the culture by capitalizing on the natural rhythm of the secular calendar, using January 1st as an opportunity to teach about peace and justice. Every new beginning includes an internal inclination within the human spiri...

Founding Parent Reflects on 18th Annual Christmas Pageant

Merry Christmas As I was sitting spellbound in our new building last evening at the ‘18th annual Mount Royal Christmas Pageant’, my thoughts were immediately brought to just how far we have come from the '1st annual Mount Royal Christmas Pageant’. But have we? On my way to the office this morning after dropping off my nine year old at MRA, my thoughts went back to the early formative days of MRA. We had very humble beginnings to say the least. MRA occupied a wing of an old hospital building. The patient’s rooms were the classrooms. The newborn nursery was the office. The hallway was the site o...

Not All Revolutions Are Completely Good

The core of the social studies curriculum at MRA is the study of our own nation's founding, and the positive values that instigated the revolution of the colonists against the British. Enduring ideas such as respect for human dignity, freedom for the good, religious tolerance, and the natural law inspired the colonists to act. In the French Revolution, rebels were inspired by a different set of core values - values associated with the philosophy of the Enlightenment - which ultimately led to immoral and poor actions on behalf of those leading the revolution. We challenge students to discover t...
