“The statue was ordered through The Carmelite Sisters, Colorado Springs and was hand carved in Italy. MSA would like to thank all who attended the Mass and give special thanks to those who made the acquisition of the new, beautiful statue possible: the MSA 125th Anniversary Celebrations contributions [2015]; the MSA Faculty, Staff, and Students 2017/18; Sue Moench, Principal and Margaret DiGiacomo, Assistant Principal; and Sister Judith Marie Rollo, SC and Sister Dolores Sullivan, SC.

“On Sunday, January 28, 2018, MSA begins its annual celebration of Catholic education through Catholic Schools Week. We strongly believe in the benefits of a Catholic education and our internationally recognized Alberta Curriculum.

“Results show that students who attend Catholic school receive a challenging, high-quality academic experience in a supportive environment, with an emphasis on Christian values and post-secondary preparation. The self-discipline developed by students, along with learning to accept responsibility and to respect others, work together to create excellent life-long learners.”
