Happy Tuesday! 

This week we celebrate the first week of Lent. We focus on prayer, fasting and almsgiving. As the primary educators of your children, how are you modeling and encouraging your child to fully experience this wonderful season? Maybe as a family you decide to pray together before bed, or read a bible passage. Do you know what your child decided to fast from? How can you support or encourage them to keep going even when it gets hard and to restart when they forget? There are so many ways to participate in almsgiving that can be particularly fun for children. They could do chores to earn money to give to the Mission Childhood Association, or donate old clothes or toys to those less fortunate. The family could work a shift at St. Vincent de Paul, or make blessing bags to give to the homeless.

I pray that you have a blessed Lenten Journey.

Thank you for your patience as we found a permanent solution to our sewer pipe issue. We have replaced a section of the pipe that was damaged and coated the inside of the pipe with a lining. We believe that this solution will last for years.
