Farewell to St. Paul’s Staff

Fr. Boutilier, S.J.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to Fr. Michel Boutilier for 23 years of faith-filled service as our school Chaplain, providing liturgy and supporting the spiritual growth of our students through teaching and retreats. Let us keep Fr. Boutilier in our prayers as he embarks on his next mission as Chaplain at Brebeuf College High School in Toronto.

Cari Friesen

We thank Ms. Cari Friesen for two and a half years of dedicated service to the school, teaching Mathematics and providing invaluable guidance and help to students who needed support. We wish her all the best in your new position at St. Boniface Diocesan High School next school year.

Joan Trimble

After a decade of dedicated service, Ms. Joan Trimble is leaving St. Paul's to take on a vice principal position at St. Mary's Academy. Throughout her ten years with us, Ms. Trimble has been a cornerstone of our English Language Arts department, teaching both standard and Advanced Placement English courses. Her commitment to supporting students extended beyond the classroom, providing English language support and serving as the head of the English department.

Ms. Trimble's influence reached into co-curricular activities as well. As the debate coach, she inspired students to develop their critical thinking and public speaking skills. Additionally, her involvement with the Dramatic Society, including directing plays, showcased her dedication to the arts. One of her most notable contributions was leading the stained glass window art project, a tribute to our staff's excellence as Ignatian educators.

We are grateful for Ms. Trimble's ten years of exceptional service and her commitment to education and the arts. We wish her all the best in her new role, knowing that her impact will continue to inspire our school community.

Lloyd Voth

After 43 years of incredible service, Mr. Lloyd Voth retired last January, leaving behind a legacy of dedication and excellence. Throughout his career, Mr. Voth made significant contributions to our school community teaching Physical Education, Health, and Biology, and as a Vice Principal. Mr. Voth was instrumental in the creation and success of the school’s Volleyball Program, helping establish it as a hallmark of our athletic offerings. We are grateful for Mr. Voth's extraordinary service and commitment. As he embarks on this new chapter of his life, we wish Mr. Voth a fulfilling and enjoyable retirement.

A Summer Prayer

Father, Creator of all, thank You for summer!

Thank you for the warmth of the sun

and the increased daylight.

Thank You for the beauty I see all around me

and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy Your creation.

Thank You for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family,

and for the more casual pace of the summer season.

Draw me closer to You this summer.

Teach me how I can pray

no matter where I am or what I am doing.

Warm my soul with the awareness of Your presence

and light my path with Your Word and Counsel.

As I enjoy Your creation, create in me

a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for You.
