Working together with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board,

Our Lady of  Peace Council #8668 prepared a Grade 5 lesson plan on the topic

of "Keeping Christ in Christmas".  This new initiative was launched at five local schools

within the St. Francis of Assisi and St. Ignatius of Loyola Parishes during the

2009 Christmas Season. 


The program also included a "Keeping Christ in Christmas" artwork contest,

with prizes awarded by the Council at each school in January 2010.


It is hoped that the "Keeping Christ in Christmas" program can be expanded

to many more schools within the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board in 2010.
