Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of the Lenten season. During this liturgical season we prepare for Easter by imitating Jesus and going out into the "desert" to pray and sacrifice. Lent lasts forty days (with the exception of Sundays) and during this Lenten season you will notice students learning about the meaning of Lent and the various Lenten practices we traditionally follow, guiding us through this journey.
It is a season of prayer, giving, abstaining, and fasting. One way students are giving is by bringing in loose change for our penny drive (doesn’t have to be pennies). All proceeds are going to the 86 orphans in Africa our student have spiritually adopted. Students are praying the Stations of the Cross on Fridays and each class is doing something special in their own little way. It is my hope and prayer that all of us will have a renewal of faith this Lenten season and become closer to God and one another.
