Servite Domino in laetitia! (Serve the Lord joyfully!)
My name is Jason Borkowski and I am the Principal at Cloverdale Catholic School in Surrey, BC.
I am a father of seven and have been married for 15 years. I love my family, my church, and my job and pretty much consider myself the luckiest man alive.
