We have created the following plan to ensure the safety of our staff, students, and families as we welcome them back to in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year. The plan is offered as guidance to our pastors and Catholic school leaders as they take the steps to bring staff back to work and students back to school.

In summer especially, service is a tradition for St. Francis of Assisi Middle School Committee on Conscience students. Stepping into the lives of individuals who have been marginalised or pushed beyond the boundary of other people's hearts and caring has been the destination for all of our young people. Normally we are engaged with a number of agencies whchi allow us to interact directly and intimately with their clients. We have met and stepped into the lives and stories of the homeless, refugees, immigrants, the elderly, those who are challenged physically and the wonderful people at Dreams with Wings. It is within these lives that we discover that all of us, even those who might appear to have 'nothing', actually are in possession of powerful treasures of humanity, heart, soul and character. We learn with profound intimacy about our own humanity too and about our Christian calling to create family with all. We witness, intimately, the mutuality we share when it comes to needing each another so that we can make one another other whole. In the end, we learn to proclaim and protect the dignity of all life and of all lives. But, this year, with the Covid-19 virus, these opportunities have been greatly diminished and challenged.

Our rising 8th grade students aren’t letting COVID get in the way of their summer service! They have been out in the community finding many ways to proclaim and explore their own calling to reflect Christ into the world as well coming to hold as sacred the dignity of all life. One of those places has been Eastern Cemetery, a newly adopted HeartPaths destination for middle school. It may seem strange to think about being able to protect and proclaim life in a place such as this- an abandoned collection of over 100,000 graves. But this is exactly what the students have done - working to honour lives that once were like theirs and which still deserve being remembered and prayed for. Making clean and visible the names on tombstones of individuals who passed long ago, names which are being eroded by time and forgetting, restores their lives to our living memory. It opens up the possibility that family members, or anyone, can once again find their loved ones and, beautifully, it allows their names to be held in heart and mentioned specifically in prayer.
In their work, the students have found the graves and markers of 18 children which had been totally abandoned and lost - covered fully by a deep layer of soil, weeds and grass. Nature quickly reclaims what people build when it is uncared for. Pushing back against this great inertia of forgetting, rescuing lives from certain invisibility, restoring names that can now be held in hearts and prayer is surely a powerful way to explore, understand and own the dignity of life. Our students have done this in abundance.
