Bricks for St Thomas School
Council: 2755 - SPRINGVALE
Springvale Council #2755 began a tradition years ago of purchasing memorial bricks at St. Thomas School which benefit the school. St. Thomas School serves the parishes of St. Therese of Lisieux, Holy Spirit and St. Matthew. In partnership with the family, they are dedicated to nurturing the personal development of the whole child. Their mission is to instill Catholic values, foster self-discipline and promote academic excellence in the spirit of a caring and affirming community.
The Council purchases a brick every time a council member passes away. The bricks cost a total of $50.00 and can be found in the front of the school where there is a memorial walkway for supporters of the school.
This year the council has already donated $100.00 for two bricks in the memory of brothers Paul Payeur and Andre Vermette to St. Thomas and will continue to do so throughout the year.
