Important Information from McCarthy, our school uniform supplier:

There will be no mobile shopping event in August this year. Appointment bookings, and through the In School Shop’s regular scheduled hours, are the only in-person purchasing methods.

We would like to thank you for your partnership as we continue to transition to the era of McCarthy Uniforms. We have spent a great deal of time speaking to the school community to identify areas where McCarthy Uniforms can continue to effectively meet your school uniform shopping needs. As a result, our first initiative is to re-develop the traditional “Mobile Show” and design it to be a more customer-centric and streamlined solution for outfitting a student. We are pleased to introduce Appointment Booking Events which will run on select dates at your school in May.

Your school’s Appointment Event dates are as follows: DATE : TIME:
Monday, May 1 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Monday, May 8 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Monday, May 15 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Wednesday, May 24 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Monday, May 29 4:00pm – 7:00pm
* You may also book appointments in May during regular store hours Mondays 11:00am-3:00pm

Help Shape the Future of Catholic Education!

Renewing the Promise: Exploring the Critical Role of Catholic Education in Contemporary Society

We want to hear from you about Catholic education in Ontario! “Renewing the Promise” is a dialogue for everyone.

Your input about Catholic education in Ontario – the way it fulfills its mandate as well as the challenges and opportunities of the present moment – will help to guide us for the future.

You can offer your ideas and input on-line through ThoughtExchange. Log in to: to participate. ThoughtExchange will provide background information and three open-ended questions that you answer anonymously. When the survey closes, responses will be sorted into themes. You will then be invited to look at emerging themes and prioritize them, locally and provincially.

You are also invited to attend an evening information session where your Catholic Education Coalition will outline the campaign; we will engage in conversation about Catholic Education; and you will have an opportunity to share your ideas in person and online as part of the Thoughtexchange process.

St. Joseph C.S.S

Tuesday, May 9, 2017


Come on out and Join the conversation!

Please RSVP by contacting the school at 613-936-0319 ext. 120 and leaving a message for Lauren Webster, Chaplain at Holy Trinity Secondary School by Friday, May 5, 2017.

Your ideas will provide important input for a gathering of the Catholic community later in the year on the theme of Renewing the Promise.

When the process is completed, results and analysis will be available on a designated public website. Catholic Education Week 2018 will be the occasion to celebrate all that we learned.

Please join the dialogue!
