Benches memorialize St. Francis of Assisi students

School seats dedicated to Andrew and Matthew Moeller, killed in tragic car accident in 2009

Recently I had the privilege of attending the special blessing of a bench dedicated to two former students at St. Francis of Assisi:
It was another step in the healing process for the Moeller family and their community at St. Francis of Assisi Elementary School June 1, as students, faculty, and parents gathered to honour Andrew and Matthew Moeller. 
The brothers died Nov. 29, 2008, in a car accident which also paralyzed their brother Karl. As 2012 would have been the year of Andrew's Grade 7 graduation, the school raised money to build and dedicate benches to keep alive the memories of Andrew and Matthew.
