The Season of Lent is Coming

As you know,  Wednesday, February 14 we begin the season of Lent.  Our children in “Wednesday” classes will be participating in an Ash Wednesday Prayer Service during class time.  Parents are asked to accompany their children to the service.  Over the course of the next few weeks children will be participating in lessons and activities focused on the practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. 

Here are just a few of the Lenten Activities planned:

  • Level 2 students will receive their First Penance

  • Level 3 students will learn about the Stations of the Cross and make their own crucifixes

  • Level 4 students will visit the O’Dea Center to learn about how Holy Family helps those in need

  • Level 5 students will be praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary

  • Level 6 students will be praying the Stations of the Cross

  • Level 7 and 8 students will be invited to participate in a Living Stations of the Cross
