Second Snow Day of School Year

As we bask in the rest of another snow day, perhaps we can utilize the time God has given us to encounter him more deeply through silence and prayer.  Yeah right! The mission of a family is not entirely conducive to quietly contemplating the mystery of God's love for us. Alas, for those of us who will not have that luxury this day, we have listed below a series of links which can also deepen our awareness of Christ in our lives. But first, a little contextual reminder ought to assist us in recognizing how interconnected the world is today, and also how much more quickly and effectively we can...

Our Patron and Advent

During this most sacred season where Christians strive to settle our saturated hearts in order to seek the silence of our Savior's birth, St. Joseph - our patron - enters the forefront of our spiritual journey once again. His powerful intercession has continually provided our school with all our needs, just as he protected and provided for his adopted Son during the frightening months after his birth. He is often dubbed "Joseph the Silent" because he never utters a word in the scriptures. Rather, his resolute actions speak louder than any word that he could speak. At Mount Royal, leaning on Jo...

December ALREADY?!

Onward into December we go! Before students and teachers can so much as blink an eye, the school year advances into this wonderful and festive season. As we embark upon this early winter journey towards Christmas we are reminded of how our academic calendar is largely influenced by the liturgical calendar of our faith community - the Church. Today students began to decorate school buildings, and immediately the Mount Royal charism becomes apparent; creches, advent wreaths, and customary cultural decorations are combined to create an atmosphere indicative of the true purpose of the advent seaso...

Coach Reflects Upon Soccer Season

"God is in control....God is in control.... God is in control...." were thoughts that had to be forcefully placed into my own heart on many occasions during this past soccer season. There were many instances in which the Holy Spirit gently reminded me that I am not in control of how our team would finish, because the recipe for success this soccer season seemingly called for an extra dose of superior strategy. In my mind I thought I am going to strategically pave our way to glory, for we have too much inexperience to compete. Moreover, the players exerted so much effort during preseason traini...

Knights Leave It All On The Field

The Knights suffered another heart wrenching loss against Jesse Remington yesterday, definitively closing the door on a potential championship. The first half was full of back and forth action between both teams, with Mount Royal jumping out to an early lead, forfeiting it on a PK, and then recapturing it by the conclusion of the half. In second half play, Jesse Remington was relentless in attacking our net  during the crucial moments immediately following halftime. The momentum assuredly switched into their hands, and it was difficult for the knights to overcome. Jesse Remington capitalized o...

Knights Enter Playoffs With Momentum

After a few growing pains early in the season, the Knights are fully tuned, locked, and ready to go for their second-round match-up against a familiar foe: Jesse Remington. The Knights advanced through the first round, albeit without playing an actual game, and should have all their energy savored for this decisive game. If the Knights lose, they will play for 3rd place in the final standings on Saturday, November 13th. If the Knights win, they will play for 1st place against either Holy Family Academy, Parker, or Tri City. Inevitably, the likelihood of advancing is largely based upon our reso...

A Student Reflects On Service Experience

Going to serve the poor and needy at Cor Unum was an inspiring experience. I was given the task of serving people their meals and making sure that there was a new place set for the next people to come. At first I looked at as a good chance to collect service hours for school, but as soon as I served the first table of people my perspective changed. One would think working at a soup kitchen is a depressing undertaking, something that would dampen your spirits as you were exposed to the poverty of the people. It was actually exactly the opposite. I was filled with joy at the opportunity I was gi...

Sizzling Finale to Regular Season

The Knights finished the regular season on a high note, with a decisive 3-2 victory over visiting Jesse Remington at home. This game was action-packed, stacked with timely saves by a rookie keeper Matt Bocko, as well as some sensational offensive demonstrations put on by Pablo Marquez. The defense was sound and simple once again, led by the resurgence of Joe Wallace and Matt Begin, who protected the middle of our defensive area with intensity and determination. This was a key game primarily because it propels us into the playoffs with a great deal of positive momentum. Thus, we finish the regu...
