I hope you are having a good Lent. No matter what your Religious Tradition, the practice of Prayer, Fasting and Giving is good to promote. For second graders, this may look like intentionally praying more as a family, fasting by giving something up for Lent, and your child serving you by doing extra chores so they can put change in the Poor Box at Church.

For those children receiving their first Sacrament of Reconciliation, it is scheduled for Monday, March 16th after the 2:00 Dismissal. You must reach out to Ms. Donna to let her know if you can attend with your child. If you can’t attend, she will reschedule with you.
