Sherwood Park History - Catholic Schools History
Sherwood Park fifty years
At the opening of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Parish Priest Father Kenneth Kearns stated, "You never have a Parish unless you have a separate school." Inspired by these words, a meeting was held in Moe Salm's living room, where it was decided to form a school district. An almost unanimous vote by parishioners in November 1962 confirmed the formation of the Salisbury Roman Catholic School District (later changed to Sherwood Park Catholic Separate School District, and then to Elk Island Catholic Separate Regional Division). (Adapted from the Strathcona County website).
It is due to Parish Priest Father Kenneth Kearns that Sherwood Park now has a Catholic School system.
Father Kenneth Kearns School
Schools in the Catholic School District have a history of sharing their space. In 1967, students from Father Kenneth Kearns School were housed at OLPH for 4 months until their school was completed. OLPH students attended in the morning and FKK students had afternoon classes!
- Father Kenneth Kearns Catholic School was built in 1967.
