Lent comes early this year. Ash Wednesday is this coming Wednesday, February 13. There are many individual acts which all of us do for Lent. However, we will add a school wide activity, which has a family component as well.
It is no revelation to say that Catholics pray. For Lent the school will join the 40 Days for Life Campaign. Each morning we will pray a special prayer for the unborn as a school. We are asking families to participate with the children by praying an additional prayer at home. Specific week prayers are included with this Newsletter.
Bishop Olmsted will kick off this entire campaign with a Mass at OLMC this Tuesday at 6:30. If it is possible, perhaps you could join in this Mass. More information can be found on the website www.40daysforlife.com/tempe.
I want to thank a school parent, Mrs. Lisa Blevins, for working so hard on this project and bringing it to the school. Secondly, thank you to Mr. Rob Harney, also a parent, for printing all of the prayer cards for the children to use.
Let us all join to pray for the unborn this Lent. If we bring about the conversion of just one heart, it will be a success
