Sacred Heart Saints Prayer During Lent
 
During this second week of Lent, our student leaders led the school through a reflection on Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan women. As  we prepare for this Sunday's gospel. Students were encouraged to engage, talk or sit with someone they do not usually interact with. How can we encourage this in our children?

Today, as we prepare to enter into our third week of Lent, we ask the Lord to help form a new heart within us. Let us pray:

"God of all compassion and goodness, 
to heal the wounds our sins and
    selfishness bring upon us
you bid us turn to fasting, prayer, and
    sharing withour brothers and sisters.
We acknowledge our sinfulness,
     our guilt is ever before us.
When our weakness causes discouragement,
     let our compassion fill us with hope
and lead us through a Lent of repentance
     to the beauty of Easter joy.
Grant this through Christ our Lord."

Eighth Graders Lead our Scholars in 
the Stations of the Cross

Throughout this season of Lent, our 8th graders are leading K-4 through the Stations of the Cross. Our Church has set-up beautiful stations posters by the parking lot, and at night they are lit up with purple lights. Each Thursday throughout Lent, 8th grade is praying with one of our younger grades through the Stations.

Try to stop by the stations at night to see them and to spend time in prayer this season of Lent.

In addition, please join us at 2:00pm on Friday, April 7th in the Parish hall, as 5th grader acts out the stations of the cross for our entire school community.

Stations of the Cross at Sacred Heart Church: Everyone is welcome to pray the Stations of the Cross, every Friday during Lent after the 8:00am Mass and the 6:00pm Mass.
