Weekly Update February 28th – March 2nd


Greetings Bears Families and Friends;

We continue the first part of Lent, during which we learn is a time to acknowledge the ways in which we get distracted and turned away from God – and a time to deliberately turn back to focus on God’s desire for our lives.  The traditional Lenten disciplines of fasting, prayer, study, and almsgiving are all ways to help us do this work.

Our Carizon Support Worker will be offering the next presentation on March 7th. The topic will be on “Get A Jump on March Break Planning – Activities and Ideas.” Please contact the school if you are interested in attending. Coffee Connections St. Bernadette Feb 7th and Mar. 7th .2018.
