A Few More Decisions Shared
The first weeks of May have been a time for our Class of 2022 to share where they are going from here after June 5. Dressing in their high-school-to-be sweatshirts, and t-shirts and decorating their lockers they have shared their news and given us a chance to celebrate with them.

A Heartfelt Thank You from Ghana
We recently received a heartfelt thank you letter, filled with excitement and joy, from Sister Angelina and the entire school community in Ghana. As you know, through Sister Thaddeus' religious order, the Holy Family of Nazareth, we have devoted monies from our Lenten Missions, over the years, to help the good Sisters build, furnish, and fill with needed supplies, a school for young children. Holy Family of Nazareth School, now years in operation, continues to grow and flourish and we are so thrilled to be a part, of the bigger family around the world, that helps support them.

Sister Angelina wrote to Sister Thaddeus to share that another of their Sisters, Sister Lucyna, visited and brought $2000 as a gift from our St. Rose School Community. Sister Angelina shared a story about making a decision of how to use the money; as we hear it, I think we see that tried and true belief, that God works in mysterious ways. The school has a big multipurpose auditorium, which is used for many, many gatherings and events. For most of these activities they have used the school projector, and needless to say with so much use, the tired projector recently gave out; right at the time our donation arrived. So the Sisters were able to replace it with more modern and reliable technology in a TV; and as Sister Angelina pointed out, now all children benefit as well as teachers and even parents during their meetings.

In closing, with great gratitude, she says to all..

"May God richly bless you, all the benefactors and the families you are working with! May He reward everything you gave to us. God bless you!"

We can all feel the light of Christ burn brighter in our lives knowing that we were part of a solution for a school far away, but close in heart!
