  • During Lent, we are asked to devote ourselves to seeking the Lord in prayer and reading Scripture, to service by giving alms, and to practice self-control through fasting. Many know of the tradition of abstaining from meat on Fridays during Lent, but we are also called to practice self-discipline and fast in other ways throughout the season. – USCCB
  • Loving God, During the sacred season of Lent, bring me closer to you.  Prepare a place in my heart for silence and solitude, so that I may re-discover the grace of a prayer-full life.Help me to fast from those things that threaten the well-being of body and soul and remind me of the grace of simplicity. May this season be a grace-filled time to rekindle my love for and faith in you.  Amen.Be a Beacon! During Lent we will be focusing showing Christ’s light to others through being a Blessing, Encouraging each other, doing Admirable works, being Caring, Obedient, and Noble. When a teacher sees a student exhibit one of the traits of being a Beacon, they will receive a Beacon note sent home to share. They also add their name to our “Be a Beacon” lighthouse, displayed in the auditorium.

Students are encouraged to sign up for parts. We need to fill many roles that do not require audition, so please consider a role with less dialogue! Every part is important and we need you! We will also read through scenes for tryouts on Monday. And as they say, “Break a leg!”
