Next Wednesday is the last day that you can send your Rice Bowls to school for collections. We will bring them up as part of our gift offering at Mass. You can always return your Rice Bowl to church at any of the Easter Masses, a large Rice Bowl will be out for collection. The students will be watching their last Rice Bowl video this week as we continue our study as companions on a journey. We encounter Jesus this week in Jerusalem, a community he knew well. We prayerfully enter our own communities too, encountering those who are hungry and thirsty, those who need our help. How does our Lenten journey motivate us to serve those we meet in our daily lives? Visit crsricebowl.org for more.

This Sunday is Palm Sunday and our Second Grade along with our third and fourth grade students will be acting out the Passion. We would love for you to join us at the 11:00 Mass for this solemn prayer. We will begin with a procession at the Mary statue in the front of school. Second, third and fourth grade students will need to meet us at the statue at 10:30. Seats at church will be reserved for our student actors.

This Friday is our last Fabulous Friday for the Lenten Season. Mass will be at 2:30, the Fish Fry starts at 5:00 and Stations of the Cross will be prayed at 7:00.
Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and the Book Fair, oh my!
