Dear Parents
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  We are coming into the most important church season of the year.  Lent is the lead up to the event that is the center of our faith as Catholics, the death and resurrection of Christ.  It is a season of preparation and reparation.  We prepare ourselves to be the best people we can be and we repair our faith with God and others.  If we made mistakes, (and we all make mistakes) we try to fix them, and we make that extra effort to become the best version of ourselves.
If we have been finding it hard to get to mass on the weekend, Lent is an excellent time to try to change that with our families.  Lent is not just about giving up things that are bad for us, it is about doing things that are truly good for ourselves, our families and others.  This is the message we try to share with your children every day, and even more so during Lent.  We pray for all our families during this special season.  God Bless.
Yours in Faith,
J. Murphy
