On March 4, 2015, William was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in the base of the esophagus. William started a course of 5 weeks of radiation and chemo therapy and after recovery from that (6-8 weeks), he will be going to Saskatoon where surgeons will remove his esophagus. This will require a 3 week recovery time in hospital. William and his wife, Edrina, were members of the Church of Our Lady during their time in Moose Jaw. Their missionary spirit led them to Kenosee where they became the Directors of Kenosee Boys & Girls Church Camp. Their lives have always been ones of service to God and others. William and Edrina need our support.
A young man in Holy Trinity’s elementary school system was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. He has a long journey ahead of him as he battles this disease. He and his family need our help.

We are the Vanier Collegiate Relay for Life Team. This will be our third relay, our total funds raised in the first two relays was just over $10,000.00. For this relay we have set a goal of $6,500.00, that will be the most our team has ever raised in a single relay. The first year we started we had 27 members on the team, last year we had 41 members.
Taryn Bakke and Tori Beattie will be team Captain for the third and final time this year.
The relay is June 12th outside in Wakamow Valley at the Oval. Students can join our team by signing up in the office or by speaking to Tori or Taryn. Donations can be made online (HERE) or in the Vanier office.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mr. Joseph Melia. Mr. Melia was the first principal of Vanier Collegiate when it was founded in 1966. We ask the Vanier community to keep the Melia family in your thoughts and prayers.
