Christmas Cards for Children with Cancer
Christmas will be just a little brighter this year for some patients in the Sudbury area suffering from cancer. Grade 8 students at St. Charles College Elementary, created handmade Christmas cards that will be distributed to patients suffering from cancer, in honour of one of their own classmates who is courageously battling the disease.
Mrs. Kathy Belanger, the teacher in charge of the activity said: “One of my students, came to me with a letter from her grand mother’s friend, asking if we would be willing to create Christmas cards as a way to make some people’s holiday season a little brighter. Our class thought it would be a wonderful gesture to demonstrate how we are ‘Church in the World’.”
During two religion classes, students in the 8A homeroom put their artistic talents to work while listening to Christmas music, which created an atmosphere of happiness, joy and hope for those struggling with the disease.
The cards will be distributed before the holidays begin.
