MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 23, 2015 – In light of the senseless acts of terrorism in Paris, students from Rosemount High School and Nesbitt Elementary School in Rosemount, Perspectives I & II in St. Michel and Dalkeith Elementary in Anjou will be commemorating the victims through a book of peace called “Our Prayers for Paris”.

Students have written poems, messages of hope, as well as created artistic representations of peace marking the tragedy.

The project, which was organized by Spiritual and Community Animator Vince Lacroce, will also help students recognize “International Tolerance Day,” held annually on November 16. An interactive workshop called “My place in the World” will accompany the creation of the book. The workshop will be focused on the respect and appreciation of the rich variety of cultures in our world and how we can become advocates for peace.

The schools involved would also like to extend a thank you to Bureau En Gros (4625 Jean Talon Est) for generously offering to sponsor the printing and production of the book.

Once completed, the book will be sent to the Canadian Embassy in Paris.
