Dear Parents,

As we enter into the second week of Lent we are reminded of how our faith is always being tested. We are asked to trust in the Lord for He is good and His love is never ending. God knows what we need before we do.  

God has chosen a plan for each one of us. Only He knows what that is and although we may not understand what He has in store, our faith helps us to accept the plan and do what is asked of us. In time we grow to trust that the Lord gives us what is best.  He is there with us on that path steering us in the right direction and providing the strength we need along the way. 

Quote from Pope Francis:

"Open your heart to faith and He will do the rest."

Faithfully yours,

Miss Giaquinto

Be the Good Lent Event

Our Be the Good Lent Event is in full swing!  Please encourage your children to do their 5 simple acts of kindness this Lent.  A list of kid-friendly kindness ideas were sent home with the kindness cards. Feel free to get the whole family involved and have fun spreading kindness throughout our community.  

Children will fill out hearts in school naming the acts of kindness they did.  Our goal is to fill up the crosses in school with these hearts of kindness as a sign of our love for Jesus.  Together our small acts of kindness can make a big difference!  

Catholic Relief Services 
Lenten Rice Bowls

During Lent our community will participate in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter our neighbor, as companions on the journey, through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. 

We will collect your CRS Rice Bowls at the end of Lent.
