Ash Wednesday

Today we gathered with Father Gerard to celebrate Ash Wednesday with him.  It is very different to have an ashless Wednesday.  Please take a peek at this document that helps us explain to our children why we Fast, Pray and Give Away during the 40 days of Lent.

Our Lenten project this is year, looks a little different.  We will be working with other schools in our board and our community to support North of 60 at St. Vincent de Paul as we support Rankin Inlet and the sending of a container of food up this this community to share with those in the north.  Each day we have a daily challenge to help us make a "difference in our world" here at St. Emily and at home.  At the same time, we will be gathering money to share with North of 60 to fill a container up as full as we can during our Lenten journey.
