His Grace, The Archbishop of Toronto, Thomas Collins visited Northmount on December 17, 2007. He addressed Northmount students, parents, faculty and members of the Board in the chapel. The Archbishop brought with him the message of hope and the love of Christ and how this can be found in every human being. He also explained how the Church operates within a hierarchy and was questioned by students with a wide variety of inquiries ranging from his time in Alberta, to what inspired him to become a priest and then an Archbishop.
His Grace was pleasantly surprised by both the sophistication of our students and their extraordinary listening skills and manners. Following the presentation in the chapel, His Grace met with faculty, administration, and parents in a reception held in our library. The executive of our student council (pictured right) also had the opportunity to further meet with the Archbishop.
His Grace was welcomed by Monsieur Breen and his brother Father Breen, the two members of the clergy who say Holy Mass twice per week at Northmount. We thanked His Grace for the time he took to come to our school and for his message to all of us. We wish His Grace, The Archbishop of Toronto, Thomas Collins all the best in his mandate and will continue to pray for him.
