Throughout Lent, our students will participate in a special project to help the Missionaries of the Poor. These missionaries help the poorest of the poor in Jamaica and the Philippines.
During this holy season, we will focus on Jesus' words (Matthew 25: 40) "...whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." Students will reflect on the Corporal Works of Mercy as they support the ministry to the poorest of poor.
We ask each student to bring $1. for this special collection. Then, we will celebrate the generosity and good works of our students on Wednesday, March 27th (the day before Easter Vacation) with a dress-down day. (If students have gym class that day, they may dress-down with their favorite t-shirt and gym pants.)
Students may bring their $1. donation to school in an envelope marked "Lenten Project - Missionaries of the Poor" and label the envelope with their name and grade. We will collect donations from February 14th through March 15th.
Thank you and God bless you for your support of this beautiful work to help those in need.
Mr. Terrance Golden
