Lenten Prayer

O gracious Master, infuse in our hearts the spotless light of Your Divine Wisdom and open the eyes of our mind that we may understand the teachings of Your Gospel. Instill in us also the fear of Your blessed commandments, so that having curbed all carnal desires, we may lead a spiritual life, both thinking and doing everything to please You. For You, O Christ, our God, are the enlightenment of our souls and bodies; and to You we render glory, together with Your eternal Father, and with Your all holy, life-creating Spirit, now and ever, and forever.

Living Stations of the Cross

Our 7th and 8th graders performed the Living Stations on Friday. It was a great way to begin the Lenten season and see the stations come alive.

Thank you to Mrs. Leisgang, religion teacher, and Mrs. Schmidt, our director of sacred music, for helping the students practice.
