May this sacred season renew our desire to live fully the promises of our baptism and to love you with a whole heart. Through more frequent prayer, acts of charity, and fasting, may we remember that loving you and one another is the most important thing we can do. In confidence, we ask these things through Jesus Christ Our Risen Lord and Savior. Amen Dear Parents/Guardians, As busy as we all get in our own lives, we can never forget that we are on a spiritual journey. Throughout this season of Lent we are reminded of Jesus in the desert; Jesus carrying the cross; Jesus on the cross. At Easter, we will celebrate the Resurrection. During Lent we can take the time to reflect on the choices we make in our lives and commit to finding ways to make greater improvements. We are very blessed here at Saint John Paul II School to have the opportunity to work together as a Catholic community: teachers, parents, students and Church. We are blessed to be involved in so many activities beyond the mandated demands of the academic program. May we continue to appreciate one another and the significant efforts of all the partners within our community. Sincerely, G.
