Our Lenten project: Operation Rice Bowl for the Catholic Relief Services – will also begin this week. Classes will receive these materials (a coin collection box and Lenten calendar) to bring home. Their lessons during Lent will focus on the joy of helping those in need through sacrificial giving. As always, we deeply appreciate the family’s support by example in this call to Christian service. When the box is full, the parent would convert it to a check (payable to St. Mark so we can forward one aggregate check to Catholic Relief Services).
The due date for all money collections would be the last days of class before Easter break: Tuesday, April 4th and Wednesday, April 5th.
