Lenten Rice Bowls - coming home today!

The program invites Catholics to live in solidarity with our poorest and most vulnerable brothers and sisters through the three Lenten pillars of praying, fasting and almsgiving. Rice bowls are being sent home today in your child's backpack. Return Rice Bowls to the school after Easter beginning March 29.
