The Daughters of St. Paul will be coming to Vancouver for the Catholic Educators Conference and would like to visit some of the schools and parishes as well. In the past they have done a Pauline Book & Media Book Fair at St. Francis de Sales School and we are happy to see them return again this year.
The Pauline Book Fair will be held in our activity room. It will be a “cash and carry” arrangement, that is, books would be purchased from the selection we have on hand while the sisters are present in the school. Parents may come through before and after school to make purchases.
Classes will be allowed 20 – 30 minutes to visit the Book Fair. This gives us about 10 minutes to give the children an introduction about who we are, why we are at the school and about the bookfair. This is a great vocational witness especially if the children have not had exposure to religious sisters on a regular basis. During the remaining 10 – 20 minutes the students can browse the books and make a “wish list” to show their parents to purchase.
Thank you for your time in considering supporting the sisters and building the faith of your children.
