August 30, 2014
Vancouver's Archbishop Michael Miller and Bishop Jean Louis Plouffe of Sault Sainte Marie visited the Philippines to personally witness the post-typhoon rebuilding projects assisted by Development & Peace.
At the same time Vancouver's vice-chancellor Barb Dowding was in Fredricton, taking the reigns as national president of the Catholic Women's League. Dowding spoke to S+L earlier this summer about her work both at the archdiocese and with the CWL.
In Edmonton, some Catholic schools have been trying out a year-round school year. Edmonton's WCR has more details.
And one Ontario Catholic school teacher took part in a unique program for teachers, sponsored and run by Google.
