A Remnant of Resurrection
the time for daffodils has come.
bunches of six, ten or twelve,
with tightly wrapped buds,
arrive from warmer lands.
like sentinels of invitation
that keep our wintered heart
leaning into spring!
the directions say to cut
at least a half inch off the stem,
then place in water and
wait for the surprise!!
behold, in the early hour of dawn,
I see resurrection on my kitchen table,
every yellowed daffodil hurrahing the morning,
stretching outward in the etched-glass vase.
but what captures my attention
is one small, thin remnant,
beneath the smiling daffodils.
this dry, transparent cover,
a cast off tube of protection
once concealing a fragile bud,
conveys the price of blooming.
I pick up this remnant of resurrection
and hold it for a long, silent time,
wondering what soul-shroud of mine
needs to be unwrapped,
before I, too, am blooming.
My wish for you is peace and hope in this Easter season. Stop and watch that gritty tulip and browning rabbits as they say hello to spring.
To prepare our students to be successful in the economies of the 21st century guided by Catholic values and principles.
To provide relevant, global, high quality Early Learning – grade 12 Catholic education to children in our community.
Success in Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division # 140 is guided by a commitment to the following principles for action:
The amalgamation of Estevan Roman Catholic Separate School Division No. 27, Weyburn Roman Catholic Separate School Division No. 84 and St. Olivier Roman Catholic Separate School Division No. 12 took place effective January 1, 2004 to form the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division # 140.
The voluntary amalgamation came about after several years of sharing professional and educational services among the three School Divisions. The three former School Divisions were similar in many aspects, the main and strongest similarity being the education of students within the Catholic faith dimension.
The School Divisions felt this could be protected and enhanced by amalgamating and forming one larger School Division.
