The students are preparing for Easter. We began with Mass on Ash Wednesday and we will continue the next 40 days focusing on being the best versions of ourselves. Lent is the time when the students learn about putting Jesus first. We will pray every day together to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus.
During Lent the students spend time, every week at the Church, moving through the Stations of the Cross. We invite you join us with a child friendly walk of the last steps of Jesus every Thursday at 12:30.
Each student is asked to give up something important to them. The students have chosen different things but the point is to stick with it for 40 days. The journey to Christ can have temptations but we are trying very hard to stay on the path.
We will be praying for all of you this Lent. The students have such focused caring for all of those who need prayers. They remember to pray for all people in all situations. Fourth grader, Ellie Loar always asks us to pray for the people who do not have food or money or shelter. What a beautiful thought.
It is the season to open hearts and to maintain a solid purpose. We know it will be challenging but the gift of Easter is worth every day that we stay focused on Christ.
