Sudbury Catholic District School Board Welcomes Bishop Dowd for Ash Wednesday Service

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board began our Lenten Journey! We celebrated this occasion through prayer services led by our incredible parish partners. This year we also had the privilege of welcoming Bishop Thomas Dowd to our celebrations!

One of the highlights was a prayer service at Marymount Academy, where our Catholic Education Centre staff joined students to pray alongside Father Raymond, Deacon Roland, and Bishop Thomas Dowd. We extend our deepest gratitude to the Church of Christ the King, school organizers, families, and student volunteers who helped arrange this fantastic event and make it a success. We also thank all our Parishes for helping welcome lent together with our schools. It is a pleasure to have you celebrate with us in person once again!

St. Francis School Welcomes Bishop Dowd and Father Chad

St. Francis School welcomed Bishop Thomas Dowd and Father Chad Franklin to their community on October 26, 2022. While there, they visited several classrooms, toured the school and talked with staff and students.

Students asked Bishop Dowd questions, sang him songs and showed him the different projects they are working on! Some favourite student questions included:

  • What does a Bishop Do?
  • What languages can Bishop Dowd Speak?
  • How many countries has Bishop Dowd visited?
  • How many Churches does Bishop Dowd oversee?

Bishop Dowd and Father Chad thoroughly enjoyed their visit with the school and look forward to catching up with the staff and students soon!
