The annual race takes 1000s of participants from Trafalgar Road through iconic landmarks Devon House, King’s House and Hope Gardens, and through the streets of New Kingston and nearby neighborhoods. Since the first race in 2013, the Kingston City Run has raised over $12 million for local charities including Alpha, the Open Arms Drop-in Centre, Marie Atkins Night Shelter, Food for the Poor and Missionaries of the Poor. This year, KCR welcomed over 4,500 runners, including overseas guests. (more…)
Sports Day at Alpha is always a special day to look forward to. Last week the sun was shining and the energy flowing! During Sports Day, students are organized according to “houses” named after Sisters of Mercy. There is Borg House, Ripoll House and Alphonso House. Track and field is where each house goes head to head. Alpha is on Easter break for a little while, but these memories will last forever. Click on the image above for more of the photos!
Framed by a beautiful centrepiece consisting of a wooden cross made by our talented woodwork students and colorful potted plants placed in a patter designed by landscaping students. The group effort was manifested in the actual program as teachers, invited guests and staff testified to the importance of Easter and the values that Easter maintains. At this time we are giving thanks for the opportunity to develop the skills and capacities of the young men in our care and sending blessings to all our brothers and sisters in the Mercy Education System worldwide where vocation and education are critical to long term development and quality of life. More photos from the Easter program are just a click away!
