We begin the season of Lent today on Ash Wednesday. As we receive ashes, we are asked to turn away form sin and follow the gospel. The ashes tells the world we believe in the risen Christ and for the next 40 days we will look for ways to follow in our Lord's footsteps as we travel towards His resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Pope Francis writes that "whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others, no place for the poor. God's voice is no longer heard, the quiet joy of His love is no longer felt, and the desire to go good fades."
How will we internalize Pope Francis' words this Lent? What actions will we take to hear God's voice as we travel through Lent?
The children of SJS are supporting the Holy Family Hospital located 500 yards from where Jesus was born in Bethlehem. "Babies in Bethlehem" is a faith-in-action project that enables our students the opportunity to give to others less fortunate than they are who live in the Holy Land.
in 2000, Saint Pope John Paul II named the Holy Family Hospital a top priority for the Catholic Church to support for it serves to further our Catholic values of preserving life, fostering peace and charity and offering hope to the marginalized and without a voice-
The children are asked to bring in their own funds to collectively raise money as a class. Their funds can buy blankets for the unborn, diapers, medicine, pre-natal care, and neonatal intensive care.
May this season of Lent bring you closer to
