FAMILIES ARE INVITED TO PRAY THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS

Each week during Lent, a different grade is invited to participate in the Stations at 7:00 PM.
The children's Living Stations of the Cross will be the Friday before Good Friday.

MARCH MASTERPIECES FOR MOMS

The Moms, Faculty, Staff and Sister Mary Louise experienced a very enjoyable Lenten evening thanks to Mrs. Minsavage our Art Teacher, and her assistant Sister Joanne. They made artists out of all of us, as we were guided step by step, to paint a peaceful scene of a dogwood branch and its beautiful blossoms. The flowers of the dogwood tree form a perfect cross, which is why it became associated with Easter as a tree of renewal and beginnings.

4TH GRADERS CREATE VIDEO REFLECTIONS ABOUT THE LENTEN SEASON
