"A Time for Remembrance, Resolve, and Renewal"

In honor of the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on America, we would like to share prepared remarks written by Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York. As we commemorate the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon, it is a time for remembrance, resolve and renewal. We reverently recall those who were most directly affected by this tragedy -- those who died, were injured or lost loved ones. In a special way we recall the selfless first responders -- firefighters, police, chaplains, emergency workers, and other brav...

Knights Preseason Begins August 29th

WYD Madrid 2011

  Below is the text of Pope Benedict XVI's address to the youth upon his arrival in Madrid. At Mount Royal we recognize the value of youth, their indispensable importance for the future of humanity, and the irrevocable God-given dignity that each youth possesses. In the remarks below our Holy Father shows that the path towards Truth treads towards one Person who alone satisfies the deepest longings in the hearts of all people. By remaining firmly planted and rooted in Jesus Christ, we are capable of overcoming the unsatisfactory and selfish proposals of the culture, so as to achieve a life tha...

A Teacher's Testimony

My name is Derek Tremblay. I teach grade levels seven through twelve, otherwise known as the Upper School at Mount Royal Academy. God has oddly called me to attempt to instill within the hearts and minds of our youth both a desire and an awareness for the truth about Himself and us through the study of theology, and also His plan for salvation history, as observed in social studies. We strive to focus on the classical tradition in order to detect the permanence of God's truth and His love for us. Learning alongside such splendidly faithful and intelligent children is one of the greatest gifts...

Eighth Grader Appreciates Two Features of MRA Experience

Hi.  My name is Becky Thibault.  I will be in 8th grade next year at Mount Royal Academy.  I enjoy going to Mount Royal because it is a small school where I know everyone, and I get a lot of individual attention from my teachers.  I also like having Mass once a week and knowing the Blessed Sacrament is present in our school chapel.  You are all welcome to join  us for Mass, or to visit at any time. Thank You.
