 Walking in the Light of Christ

cancer society 1


Tara Crossman’s grade 10 religion class at Bishop Smith Catholic High School decided to do a bake sale fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society after a religion lesson on “how we can help others in our own community”.  After endless brainstorming and inspiration from Mother Teresa, the class decided to support the cancer society because of all of the staff and students at BSCHS who have been directly affected by cancer.  The bake sale raised $185.00 for the Canadian Cancer Society
