Flags at CEC and All Schools Lowered for Remembrance Day

Flags at the Catholic Education Centre and at all St. Clair Catholic schools will be lowered to half mast in honour of Remembrance Day, on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.

“On this solemn occasion we honour the brave men and women from Canada’s Armed Forces, who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the cause of freedom in wars and peacekeeping missions around the world,” says Deb Crawford, Director of Education.  “We give thanks to God for their service to our country and pray for His blessings of peace and comfort for their families.”

Flags will be flown at half mast from sunrise to sunset on Remembrance Day.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

From For the Fallen, by Laurence Binyon.
