Saint Joseph Religious Education
Grades 1-7 are in session
The season of lent is almost here. In preparation for this holy season, your child will receive Ashes on Ash Wednesday and he/she will take home a mite box. Each of our students will have a Lenten Buddy; the mite boxes have been personalized with the name of a student from Christ of the Rosary Parish in Nicaragua. Perhaps this mite box project would provide another opportunity for your family to talk about the meaning of giving up to help someone else. These children from Nicaragua have very little and would be delighted to know that another Catholic child is thinking, praying and offering financial support no matter how small during this holy season of lent.
We would like you to know that your child's catechist will distribute the mite boxes on Ash Wednesday in anticipation of the beginning of Lent. The boxes should be returned on Wednesday, April 5th, the last day before Easter break.
