Friends and Family of St. Peter’s Catholic School,
During Lent, St. Peter’s involves students in various events of the season: hands-on experience of repentance, forgiveness, community, sadness and joy. This week, I spoke to students about what it means to participate in the Lenten season. More often than not, we focus on what we can give up during the Lenten season, not what we can give. We should model ourselves after Jesus’s example by showing gentleness to our classmates, parents, and coworkers. We should accept each other’s faults. We should refrain from gossiping or saying things that are hurtful or unkind. We should be sincere in our apologies and forgive those who have hurt us. We need to give of ourselves and share our time, talents and skills. Lent is a time to remind us how one small, kind deed can bring us closer to the person God wants us to be. Simple acts of kindness bring great joy to others and fill our own hearts with love.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of our Lenten journey. This Wednesday, March 6th we invite you to join our school community at 8:30 am for our Ash Wednesday School Mass led by Fr. Linsky.
As always, I ask for your prayers to give me the guidance and wisdom needed to serve as principal of St. Peter’s Catholic School.
May God Bless you!
Mrs. Aubrey Wall
