Happy Tuesday!

This Sunday was the Fifth Sunday of Lent or Passion Sunday. Did you notice that all the statues and sacred images in the Church were covered in purple cloth? These cloths will remain until Good Friday when all the crucifixes are unveiled and on Holy Saturday afternoon when all the other sacred images are unveiled. We do this to imitated our Lord, their glory being revealed just as Jesus’ glory is revealed on Easter Sunday. 

During the last two weeks of Lent, we refocus our efforts to complete our Lenten sacrifices. Ask yourself: Have I kept my lenten promise? Are there any barriers that have prevented me from keeping my lenten promise?  What can I do to ensure that I meet them the last few weeks. 

Shadow Your Student Day What a wonderful day! It was so nice to have parents on campus and to see you work and play with your children. Thank you for choosing Santa Sophia Academy!
