This Lenten season we are reminded to open our hearts to God and others as we turn away from hurtful thoughts and habits. We do this through prayer, fasting, and charitable acts. Our traditional school project for Lent is collecting change for our twin parishes in Haiti, Notre Dame des Sept Doleurs in Pilette and Notre Dame d'Altagrace in Roche-Platte. Specifically, we help the school children of these parishes through our Change For Haiti coin collection. Students may contribute from allowance, ice cream money, etc. into the jug in their classroom or into the collection during school Mass throughout Lent. Last year's collection helped toward the building of a roof and addition of windows for a section the school in Pilette. (See photos of the progress so far - click this link.)
Students will participate in Stations of the Cross in the church on Friday afternoons during Lent, and eighth grade students will serve as leaders. The annual eighth grade Living Stations will be in the gym at 2:00 pm on Holy Thursday. All in our community are welcome!
