Next Wednesday begins Lent! In preparation for Lent, you child will be bringing home a Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowl. Beginning with February 21, the children will bring forward their gifts they have placed in their Rice Bowl as part of Mass. In our Lenten journey this year, each grade level will be studying a particular saint to see how they have helped to set the course of history, reflect on their lives and ask them to pray for us.

Ash Wednesday is February 14. We will be celebrating Valentine's Day on February 13. If your class is having a party or asking you to bring in a small treat, it must be done on February 13, any treats or cards that are brought to school on Feb. 14 will be held until the following day.
