Happy Lent!

Are you surprised? Do you think of Lent as gloomy and dark? Our own Saint Therese of Lisieux teaches us that it should be joyful. We have the opportunity to examine our heart and become closer in our relationship with Jesus.

It’s when we remember that our souls require just as much attention as our physical bodies.

Don’t feel overwhelmed or guilty this Lent!. Approach it with a spirit of joy and enthusiasm.

This is wonderful time to lighten our load and step out of the BUSY-NESS that keeps our relationship with God from growing. We use the excuse we don’t have time. What are we filling our time with? Mark on your  calendar church mass times and other Lenten services. Download a meditation app for yourself. Give yourself time to slow down and pray. Prayer is our conversation with God, anytime in any way.

In class we will set aside time for some traditional Lenten practices. Join us for the Stations of the Cross every Friday.

Grade 5 will be hosting a Simple Seder for Grade 4 on Holy Thursday.

Have your child share what is done in school with you. You may develop some new Lenten traditions.

Enjoy!
