Sixth Grade Lenten Food Drive

We are now in the middle of the Lenten Season.  Are we taking the time to pray more, to fast more, and to give more of ourselves to others?  It is a challenge that we must rise up to meet and for which we must be ready.  Just like a graham cracker crust is ready for pie filling are you ready to be filled with Easter joy?

STAY AWAKE

After the last supper, Jesus and his disciples found a moonlit garden to spend the night. Knowing that it was their last time together before his death, Jesus made a final request of his devoted friends: “Stay awake with me!” They tried, but they fell asleep and a company of Roman soldiers entered the garden and captured Jesus.

Stay awake to the outer world and the inner life. Stay open to every experience and every feeling, even those that are the most difficult to bear.

Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?
– Mary Oliver

Don’t forget we are making Easter Dinner bags for the less fortunate in our community.  Please be sure to bring in two(2) graham cracker crusts per student.  The pie crusts should be turned in by Friday, March 23.
