Mission Day is Friday, February 26th.  The 4th grade class has chosen to support AHeinz 57 Pet Rescue & Transport for our mission day because we just finished reading Because of Winn-Dixie and are starting the play.  How could we not help animals in need for our mission this month? On this day students are allowed to be out of uniform, provided that they participate in the mission. We ask that the following guidelines be followed on out of uniform days:

·   No baggy, tight, or torn clothing, no sleeveless shirts, or short shorts.

·   No yoga pants, or writing on the backside of pants.

·   Clothing must be appropriate for a Catholic School Setting.

Faith Formation is invited your family to participate in a special Lenten prayer journey on Sunday, February 21 at 5 PM in person at the church or virtually via YouTube!  This event will begin with meditation music, followed by welcome and prayer.  Pat Stahr, a Youth Minister from Ames, will then share on the Together in Faith February theme – Enter the Covenant through the Sacraments.  He is excited to present to our families as we walk through this Lenten season together.  The night will conclude with private reflection and prayer including a personal call to action.  It will be a beautiful evening and a great way to start Lent.  We hope you will join us!
