Hunger Meal

A Reminder of the Value of Self-Sacrifice and Charity

Every Lent the students at SCCS “offer up” a luncheon meal as a sacrifice for hungry and needy children. In addition, on this day, a collection is made for the poor and distributed through the Missionary Childhood Association.

The students gather with their home room teacher in the classroom and while the Principal reads a reflection over the intercom, they eat only a bowl of soup and a bun. The meal is completed in silence.

The staff who are not assigned to a classroom gather as community in the staff room to do the same.

A long held tradition at SCCS, this simple act serves as a reminder of the value of self-sacrifice and of how the virtue of charity can take many forms.

Sr. Hélène Sabourin served as school Principal from 1977-82. Her religious name was S. St. Hyacinthe.

Sr. Berthe Caron served as Principal from 1965-1971. Known as S. St. Martial, she has been the longest serving Principal in our school!

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. May they rest in peace. Amen.

If you have any memories of these, or any of our school alumni, we’d love to add them to our blog.
