This year, the Loonie Line raised $15,315.21.

100% of the money raised will go to the JAC Student Assistance Fund to help students in need of financial assistance and to create a JAC Wellness Bank where the importance of self-care, self-compassion, and the knowledge that help and support continue to be available is the raison d’être.

Joseph, A Chrismas Choral Story

Spectrum Voices, a well-known West-Island choir, will be performing “Joseph, A Choral Story”.
The 2-hour production recounts the Christmas nativity story from Joseph’s point of view. How does he feel when his beloved Mary reveals that she is ‘with child’, not from another human, but from God?

This choral story weaves together threads that resonate in contemporary life: loyalty, isolation, and ultimately our duty to cherish life.

Created by Margaret Forrest & John Halpin (John Abbott College’s Director General), Joseph will be performed by 6 soloists accompanied by a 15-voice choir with piano accompaniment.

The John Abbott College Foundation was holding a benefit evening at the November 16 presentation at Sainte Veronica’s Church in Dorval.

Sponsored by SpiceBros and 3Soeurs
