Today is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent. We had a prayer service and ashes were distributed. The children each received a “mite box” to collect their spare change during Lent. The boxes are a way to remind them that they should be doing something for the poor and the needy. Please encourage your children to deposit their own money in the boxes. At the conclusion of Lent, the boxes will be collected and the money given to the poor and needy of the parish.
Next Monday, March 10th, we will have a Parent Club meeting at 7 PM in the school library. We will be having many activities during the spring months. We have a small group of dedicated parents who have been working very hard to make our events wonderful. WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Please join us if you are able. I’m looking forward to seeing you then!
