Family Letter March 2018
The season of Lent is about taking time to Stop, Look and Listen on our life journey. I hope and pray that your Lenten journey is off to a good start.
The church is hosting free “Soup & Bread” every Friday during Lent at 6:30pm in the Marian Hall. There will be Stations of the Cross in English at 6pm & Spanish Stations of the Cross at 7pm in the church for all to attend. Our Parish theme for Lent is: “My House Will Be Called a House of Prayer.” All RICE BOWLS are to be returned on Monday, March 26th. Our junior high students will be praying the Living Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, March 30th, at 3pm in church—please join us in prayer.
*Enrollment for current families is open for the 2018-2019 school year. Please make sure to return your completed BLUE Enrollment form and the $100.00 fee to the office to secure your child’s spot in the class—please do not send the Book & Supply Fee/Technology Fee to the office—you will be billed through FACTS in August & September for both of those fees.
