Pray. Fast. Give Alms.
During the season of Lent, each of us are challenged to pray, fast and give alms. We encourage each family to incorporate these important aspects of Lent into their daily, family lives. At Blessed Sacrament, we will be participating in a variety of activities. In addition, your child's homeroom teacher may have activities planned to help guide your child on a successful Lenten journey.
Students will be working with their homeroom teacher to collect new/gently used items that are needed to help the Coalition to End Homelessness in La Crosse. See flyer on our home page.
Stations of the Cross:
We will pray the Stations of the Cross each Friday at 2:25 p.m. at Blessed Sacrament Parish.
On Ash Wednesday, students were given a Diocesan Mission Office Mite Box. During the season of Lent, students can challenge themselves to bypass a treat or activity for themselves and put the money in their box to return to school on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. Half of the money collected will go to the Missionary Childhood Association and the other half will be donated to a charity chosen by the students and approved by the Diocese.
Blessed Sacrament School is the "God-Parent" to a young girl, Mafer, at the orphanage Casa Hogar in Peru. Click here to learn more about Mafer. Each year we raise $1000.00 to support Mafer and $500 to support Alberto (our older God-Son). To help raise this money, we will have Jeans Day (for $1 donation) on Fridays:
March 2: Jeans and Any Color Polo
March 16: Jeans and Any Green Shirt
March 23: Jeans Day and Any Aquinas Shirt
