This is an effort to assist our students and faculty to live a prayerful and fruitful Lenten season. The Church calls us to pray, fast, and give alms during Lent. Our “Lenten Challenge” will provide simple options for each. The idea is to choose one option for each component and simply do one’s best to be faithful to it throughout Lent. Attached are flyers that will be posted around the building.

Moreover, one of the proposed methods of giving alms will be to donate to the “Friar Fund.” All money collected throughout Lent will go to support the charitable works of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Could I ask you to provide some sort of receptacle (jar, bowl, shoebox, bucket, hat…bucket-hat? etc.) for spare change in your classrooms during Lent? Also attached is a graphic you may wish to use. Thank you so much for your generosity and assistance!

May God bless you all!
