Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving

The Lenten Season is soon upon us, a time when we start to prepare for Easter, beginning with Ash Wednesday tomorrow.  During Lent we observe a period of fasting, repentance, moderation, and spiritual discipline.  Making God the centre of our life is what the Lenten Season is all about, and when we do this, then we are ready to do His work here on earth.   We are sadly not able to participate in the traditional daily Mass attendance as we have in previous years, however we will work within the provincial health orders to make our journey through Lent as meaningful as possible.  St. Paul School is supported by an incredible community, and we must teach our children to live their lives in the footsteps of Jesus – to be humble, to feed the poor, clothe the naked, help the sick.  Lent is not as much about “giving up”, but about “giving”.

Yours in faith,

Maureen Moorehead
