St. Benedict marks National Flag Day

St. Benedict students hold up the Canadian flag with pride.

Today marks National Flag Day of Canada and there were big plans to celebrate with a smudge and prayer service this morning at St. Benedict School but then there was a bus cancellation day.

The service did take place however it was very intimate and interactive with fewer students in the hallways.Chaplain, Rob Pappin honoured the territory and led the service while the students held up a very special Canadian flag. The flag was given to St. Benedict through former Member of Parliament Diane Marleau’s office. It originally flew on Parliament Hill from the Peace Tower.
