March 29-April 2
Christ became obedient for us to death, even death on a Cross. Therefore God exalted him and gave him the name above every name. (Philippians 2.8-9)
April 2-11: Easter Break
Holy Thursday: All Day Adoration and Confession.
- On Holy Thursday, we reflect on the Last Supper that Jesus had with his disciples. He then went into the garden to pray and asked his disciples to stay and up and pray with him. On this day, we have the opportunity to take some time with Jesus.
- Father Mirek will be exposing the Blessed Sacrament Thursday morning and Adoration will happen in the Notre Dame chapel until 3:30. After 11am, Father will also be available for confession through lunch.
- Remember that Good Friday is a day of fasting from meat. Eat 2-3 simple meals for the day, If you are able to go to a Good Friday service either online or in person, we encourage you to take the time to do this.

Skills Competitions Success!
Ecole Secondaire Notre Dame Presents: Something Rotten! STREAMING NOW!
Tickets are available at https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/48395 The show is ONLY available March 24, 25, 26 at 7:00 pm and March 27 at 10:00 am & 7:00 pm.
Something Rotten is set in the Renaissance period, where brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star, Shakespeare. After consulting with a local soothsayer, Nick finds out that the future in theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time. Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. This show is full of laughter, misfortune, and love. Welcome to the Renaissance!

Grow Kids 2021 (Go Girls/Grow Boys Unite)
Although we would have loved to join together in person for a more hands-on experience, we respect where we are at as a community, recognize the efforts it takes to plan the in- person event and are embracing the challenge of creating this virtually interactive event. So, how do our leaders fit in??? We are looking for fun, inspiring messages to share throughout the day with the students. Just quick little energy breaks or inspiring messages! Tik Toks showing a dance, a "10 things to survive middle school/high school", inspiring messages, basically anything that shows this group of kids a great day - just like you would if you were right there with them!
Please join me on Monday, March 29 at 12:15 on this Google Meet! I would love to get a list of students willingly to be part of this exciting day! Save the following link into your calendar and I will "see" you there! Any questions, come see me in person prior to the Meet! Mrs. Snow, Rm 1805 email@example.com
