  • Mrs. Farrell, circa 1997

    LFA Mourns Former Teacher's Passing

    We are saddened to share that Judy Farrell has passed away. Many of our alumnae will remember Mrs. Farrell as a Religion, English and Drama teacher at LFA in the 1980s and 90s. A woman of deep faith and kindness, she remained a very good friend to many LFA colleagues and kept close touch with a number of faculty friends after retirement. Mrs. Farrell bravely battled cancer for many years and was in palliative care the past several months. It is deeply, deeply saddening that family and friends could not be with her at the end because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Plans for a Celebration of Life will be made when such events are again permitted.

    We invite all families to join us as we pray for the repose of the soul of Mrs. Farrell. May her soul, and all the soulds of the faithful departed, Rest in Peace.

  • Author Danielle Kettlewell '10 Coming to Vancouver

    Danielle Kettlewell '10 wasn’t an Olympian, or so she thought. There was a huge barrier that stood in the way of her competing at the world’s largest sporting event, and it wasn’t her fitness, ability or money: it was Danielle Kettlewell. In her book, The Unlikely Olympian Danielle reveals how the little voice inside her head whispering ‘what if…’ was her enemy and her savior. Journey with Danielle, as she takes you through her battle against the limiting thought patterns that may (or may not) lead her to Rio 2016.

    Danielle's Canadian book launch is on Sunday, September 29 in Vancouver!
