Wong's Family Profile Walkathon 2018
Lumen Veritatis Academy
As the Holy Father once said, "The world needs the courage, hope, faith, and perseverance of Christ’s followers." Indeed, when Christ ascended into heaven, He commissioned His disciples to be His witnesses to the ends of the earth. We are called to stand up for the afflicted and to bring the Good News of Christ to those we meet. We pray that our children will also be able to carry out this mission as they mature in their own faith journey. As parents, we have a God-given obligation to nurture them in faith and to guide them on the right path.
This is one of the main reasons why we have decided to send our children to Guiding Light Academy. Guiding Light Academy is an independent Catholic school, following the Preventive System of St. John Bosco, which is based on kindness, reason, and religion. Guiding Light Academy is partnered with Lumen Veritatis Academy, a non-profit organization run by the Brothers of the Heralds of the Gospel. Together, they provide a solid spiritual formation and quality education focusing on the most important stage in the life of any child: the early years.
In addition to establishing a strong, religious culture at the school, Lumen Veritatis Academy also provides religious and educational programs through various forms of fundraising.
On Saturday, June 9th, our whole family will be participating in the Lumen Veritatis Walkathon 2018. We will walk 5 km along the Rosary Path in Marylake, ON, to raise money for Lumen Veritatis’ Educational programs, while praying the Rosary and the stations of the Cross. You are invited to join us and, or to sponsor by donating any amount on this online profile. Please scroll down and follow the prompts. Donations are processed by Canada Helps and when you donate $20 or more, you get a tax-deductible receipt.
Thank you for your generosity. Your contribution will make a difference in educating young people and giving them the necessary support to follow the words of Jesus, to be like "a city set on a mountain [which] cannot be hidden" (Matthew 5:14).
