  1. I agree. Culture and religion are not the responsibility -- or the jurisdiction -- of schools and daycare centers that are intended for multicultural participants. If parents want to have their children taught religion and culture in a daycare setting, let them set up -- and fund -- their own private centers for such things. Public monies should never be used for it.

    However. Children being the knowledge sponges that they are, and carrying the basis for future society as they do, I would suggest that if the parents all wished it, each religion and culture could display its own traditions at every season. But it must be all-inclusive, with full explanations of the stories and mythologies behind each of the displays, emphasizing that no one single culture or religion is "better than" any other -- that all are acceptable, and that they contain the histories of the development of their peoples and societies within them.

    "...a Christmas tree (a cultural symbol, she decreed – which is highly debatable since Christmas is a Christian holy day)."

    Um, no. The tree is not Christian. It is a Pagan symbol. Nowhere in Christianity is there a tree with such significance.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
