Hawk Happenings!


Happy ASH Wednesday! Join us for Mass at 11 am.

Today is a very special day in the liturgical calendar of the Catholic Church. It is Ash Wednesday. This day begins our 40 day Lenten journey as we prepare ourselves for Jesus' death and resurrection. Many people choose to give something up for Lent to show their sacrifice during this time. Others choose to add something, such as daily prayer and reflection time. Some do both, such as giving up Starbucks and donating that money to the poor. We also have the Rice Bowl as a place to donate money to the poor and those will come home today or next Monday (depending on your student's schedule). This is indeed a special time and gives us a break from our everyday routine and is a way of focusing our thoughts on the Lord and His ultimate sacrifice and display of love. We will be celebrating Ash Wednesday mass at St. Martin of Tours at 11 am (with students) or 6:30 pm. Please join us in person if you can, so that you can receive your ashes. We will also be live streaming, though.

Two quick reminders: Auction procurements in the value of $100 are due this Friday and can be paid through the office. If it is not received by Friday, you will be billed $150 on your next statement. Also, we have not had any other COVID cases, so we will plan for the 3rd through 8th graders to return to -inperson learning next Monday, Feb. 22nd.

REMINDER: $100 Auction Family Commitments are due Friday, February 19, 2021!

As noted on the Financial Agreement, each Holy Rosary family is required to contribute to the annual Auction. This year we have combined our Gala and Auction events so we need to do even better on this event!

We will accept donations equal to or greater than $100 in value in the form of cash or check, gift cards to local restaurants, businesses, sporting events, or places of interest. Families may also provide vouchers for goods and services such as catering, lawn maintenance, baked goods, etc. For the virtual auction, we will have food/alcohol for pick-up. If you would like, you can donate wine towards your $100 commitment. We can provide donation forms, if you prefer to solicit your items from a local business, stop by the office to grab a form.

When turning in your auction items to the office, we will ask you to fill out a form with an item description and value. This allows us to track these as in-kind donations.

You can easily pay your $100 procurement commitment by contacting Nina in the office at 253-272-7012, or online here at https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/o5kPfZnwU-9YPZxE8gatew fill out the form and choose 2021 Auction Procurement from the Campaign drop-down menu.

If the item or payment is not received by February 19, families will be invoiced $150.

***Items are subject to procurement committee approval.***
