COMMUNITY INFORMATION BULLETIN: DPCDSB Statement on Jean Vanier
February 23, 2020
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is shocked and deeply saddened to hear the reports of sexual abuse that have surfaced about Jean Vanier. In view of this disturbing news, we will be looking to change the name of our Jean Vanier Adult Education Program.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims who came forward and with the members of the L'Arche community who are hurting as a result of this disturbing revelation.
While we are shaken and disheartened by this revelation, we remain steadfast in our commitment to live out our Gospel values by embodying the spirit of love, faith, hope and inclusion within each of our school communities.
