Title: SSPX closing school. Any others?
Post by: Anonymous on June 04, 2019, 04:46:44 PM
I recently heard that the SSPX day school in Calgary Alberta (Canada) was closing at the end of the month.
Can anyone confirm this directly from the horses mouth?
Has anyone heard of any other schools closing?

Was that the same school with the scandalous policy, accepted as a condition of receiving government money?

If so, the SSPX will gain my respect (at least so far as this particular issue is concerned).

Better that there be no school than one that accepts this government tomfoolery.

I am contacting folks I know more closely associated with Society here in Alberta, to see if anyone has more information.

The idea that any and all compromises are fair game because "oh, we need a school" -- don't kid yourselves. If opened under the wrong circumstances (approval of evil, compromise, etc.) that school will have no fruit and it would be better that it not exist.

It's a diabolical deception that A) the ends can justify the means and/or B) that ANY GOOD will come from compromising with evil.

We are not promised an easy life on this earth. Homeschool might cost some families dearly. But how much are your childrens' souls worth anyhow? I'd say an infinite price! Therefore whatever we have to suffer to save their souls, is a small price to pay.

It all depends on what you think eternal salvation is worth! For some people, it's not worth giving up an annual summer vacation. For others, it's not worth giving up a "normal" middle class lifestyle. But each parent bears responsibility for their choices. God will judge you on your priorities, how you raised the children He created and entrusted you with.

Matthew

Yes, the school will close in June. Could re-open as totally private for 2020 school year.

As someone who knows quite a few people who are involved and the history of the school, I can say that I’ve heard from quite a few people that the school will be closing to get the government out and then just a homeschool co-op kind of group. I know quite a bit of the inner working of the school as someone who is not involved but knows many people who are. It’s a mess. That’s all I’ll say. There’s much more to the story and it’s terrible. Pray for the poor souls in Calgary. TOo

I had a gut sense things were bad, but unfortunately not surprised they are worse.  :-X

Don’t get me started. All I will say is once the government touches anything traditional RUN run as fast and as far as you can go.
