St. Joseph Altar
St. Joseph will host a St. Joseph's Altar this year. This is a very large endeavor and we will need every class to help us accomplish this task. We are asking each grade level to help us as we purchase and prepare different items for the altar such as cookies, cakes, bread, greenery, and a spaghetti dinner. We are asking for a monetary donation of $3 from each student. Our Crusaders Dads will construct the altar. Please watch the newsletter for the dates and items needed for constructing the altar. They will need LOTS of help.
The altar will be complete and blessed on Saturday, March 17th, after 5:00 p.m. mass. We will serve a spaghetti dinner to our school and church parish on Sunday, March 18th.
Please send donations to the office. If you would like to bake items for the altar, please call the office and we will be glad to talk to you about what we need. We also ask for prayers as we prepare the altar.
Thank you to everyone who donated at the Blood Drive. We will have another blood drive in March.

During Lent our community will participate in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter our neighbor, as companions on the journey, through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. We will reflect on how an encounter with our neighbor can be transformative. We will see how our prayers, fasting and alms can support those worldwide who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities. As we prepare for this holy season, it is especially meaningful to come together in prayer as a family. Reflecting on the crosses of hunger, poverty and war carried by our brothers and sisters forced to flee their homes, we have an opportunity to also reflect on our roles in caring for them as members of our human family.
Please consider these suggestions in your family’s Lenten plan:
• Use your CRS Rice Bowl and Lenten Calendar daily to guide your prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
• Read the Stories of Hope and daily reflections to inspire your Lenten journey— and guide your Lenten almsgiving.
• Prepare simple, meatless meals on the Fridays of Lent to eat in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world.
• Visit crsricebowl.org/stories to watch videos of the people and communities you support through your Lenten gifts to CRS Rice Bowl.
We will collect your CRS Rice Bowls at the end of Lent, so stay tuned to learn more. Thank you for participating in CRS Rice Bowl with your family.
P.S. Did you know that CRS Rice Bowl has a web page specifically for families? Visit crsricebowl.org/families for activities that will help your family grow in our Catholic faith this Lenten season.
