Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Lent is an important season for all of us as we remember Jesus’ passion for 40 days. As Catholics, we are encouraged to do the following:
a) Extended time in Prayer
b) Acts of Service/ Almsgiving
Our children do not need to participate in the fasting, but we will be coming up with a classroom goal to walk with Jesus during the Lenten season.
As part of an act of service, Mrs.Moffatt has asked the staff to relay a message to our students about making a donation of used books to a public school in need in Richmond. Blundell Elementary school is collecting a donation of used books so that families (children, parents) can have affordable access to books. We talked about the importance of sharing today and the students seemed to be interested. Blundell Elementary will be having a book fair where students can come and fill up a bag of books for $2.
If you or your child has books to give up for donation, please send it in by next Monday, March 6th in a plastic bag.
Thank you and God bless! May we all prepare our hearts for Lent and wait for the glorious season of Easter!
