This week a special Lenten gift will be sent home to each family. It's a Lenten Prayer and Reflection CD! Our students have been recorded praying the Sorrowful Mysteries. The CD also includes meditations by our parish priests, and special prayers have been recorded. It is our hope that you will grow closer to our Lord and Savior through listening and mediating on the messages found in this CD. A special thank you to Mrs. Amy Powers & Mrs. MaryLynne Duncan for
 their countless hours spent bringing this to fruition.

NJHS Stations
Stations of the Cross

It has been a long held tradition during Lent at STS, that members in the National Junior Honor Society create and perform the Living  Stations of the Cross: Jesus' final steps before he was crucified on Go od Friday. This solemn and reverent performance reminds each of us how much Christ loved us to the point of dying a public and painful death on the cross for each one of us.  Well done NJHS members!  We're proud of you! 
This  Friday, September 2, is the first  Friday of the month.  
The STS National Junior Honor Society will sponsor its monthly food drive for the parish St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.  Classes have been asked to bring in the following items:
