Lent-Banner

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.  As a school community, we will be marking our foreheads with the sign of the cross at our Ash Wednesday Celebration.  The ashes are burned palms from last year’s Palm Sunday and we wear the cross on our forehead as a sign that we need to repent or be sorry.  When we are marked with the ashes, we will “Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel”.  During Lent, we will be focusing on three practices:

  1. Fast
  2. Pray
  3. Give (Almsgiving)

Be fasting, giving, and praying, we deepen our relationship with God.  Please join us at 1:30 pm for our Ash Wednesday celebration!  All are welcome!

Wednesday is Pink Shirt Day and time to take your kindness to new heights! This Pink Shirt Day, and every day, let’s Lift Each Other Up!

The theme for this year’s Pink Shirt Day is “Lift each other up”; a simple but powerful message encouraging us to look beyond our differences and celebrate the things that make us unique. When we lift each other up, we see past the things that separate us and see instead the things that unite us as people.  Don’t forget to wear your pink shirt on WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 26!!!!!
