Dear Holy Rosary Families,

Welcome back from our mini-break.  I hope everyone had special time with their families and loved ones.  The weather has been incredible.  While we need the rain, it has been extra nice to feel a warm sun.  

The school will be attending Ash Wednesday mass at 10:00 a.m. 

 "The three great practices of Lent - prayer, fasting, and almsgiving - are three things we can all do.  As you do these three things, pray to draw closer to the Lord as the center of your life and the reason you do everything." - Lenten Gospel Reflections, Word on Fire.

We have received a special invitation by our pastor, Father Ramiro Flores, to spend a quiet hour of adoration for the Lord on Saturday, February 29, 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  This special time slot has been reserved for our school community.  The 24 Hours For the Lord begins on February 28 at 5:00 p.m and concludes with a special closing mass on Saturday, February 29 at 5:30 p.m.   We invite every family to pray with us.  

In Partnership,
Mrs. Fely Fajardo
