Dear Parents,

Another great Week of the Arts!
Each year Yves Clark continues the tradition that was started 34 years ago to expose our students to the incredibly wide range of arts that the world offers. The range of workshops on site and off site pique the curiosity of our older students and the cultural programs delight, entertain and educate the younger students.

Unfortunately, this year we did a have a performance cancel last minute but we were able to get a full refund and are promised a free performance from the group for the middle school students later in the year.

Thank you, Yves for all the hard work and thank you, Jenny DeLozier for the incredible support to make it possible.

 
Faithfully,
Chris Kelly

Nyumbani Home in Kenya needs
Communion Dresses!!

Please donate by April 8.
 
Founded as an orphanage in 1992 by Father Angelo D'Agostino, S.J.  and dedicated to serving infants and children with HIV/AIDS, Nyumbani provides a home, health care, education, and other services to more than 4000 children annually. A number of Blessed Sacrament families have supported Father Dag's and Nyumbani's work over the years.
 
Due to a recent fire at Nyumbani, there is a great need for all sizes of these special dresses which will be joyously worn at the celebration of the First Communion. These dresses are saved and passed down each year to a new group.
 
A Nyumbani Board member will be traveling to Kenya in April and so our deadline for receipt is Monday, April 8.  
 
Please drop dress donations or check donations of any amount (made payable to "Nyumbani" with "First Communion" in the memo line) at the Social Concerns office or school main office.  
 
Questions, please contact Pat Kavanugh at 202-449-3987 or pkavanaugh@blessedsacramentdc.org.
 
Heartfelt thanks in advance for your generosity!
