Sacred Heart Saints Prayer During Lent
For our alms-giving this season of Lent, the Student Government Association, SGA, is asking our community to donate long sleeve t-shirts for migrant farmers as they work in the fields with exposure to sun and chemicals. SGA went around and spoke with the students to educate students about this need.

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

"God of all,
the love of your Son led him to accept
      the suffering of the cross
that we might glory in new life.
      Help us to be like Christ your son,
who loved the world and died for
      our salvation.
Inspire us by his love,
      guide us by example.
Change our selfishness into self-giving.
      Help us to embrace the world you have given us,
that we may transform the darkness of its pain
      into life and joy of Easter. Amen.
-Lead, Kindly Light,The Notre Dame Book of Prayers
Third Graders Learn about Southeastern Guide Dogs
As part of their Catholic Social Teaching Principal, Rights and Responsibilities, the 3rd grade students choseThe Southeastern Guide Dog School for their "Pennies From Heaven" charity.  Many of the students performed extra chores at home, donated birthday money, and asked family members to help them raise funds to help support the guide dog school.  After reading the story, "Thank you Mr. Falker" the students have come to understand that with rights, come responsibilities.  Jesus has taught us that people who already have what they need are called to help others. 
Mr. Zuniga, a volunteer for Southeastern Guide Dogs, visited the 3rd grade class with his Ambassador Dog Bernie!  Bernie cheerfully demonstrated many commands, gave hugs and hand (paw) shakes, and delighted the class.  Mr. Zuniga was very impressed with the generosity of the Sacred Heart community, and thanked the students telling them their donations ($358 wow!!) make a great difference and will help a person who is sight impaired regain their independence!  Not only is it our responsibility to help others, but it is also our honor.
     -Mrs. Mueller

Jesus wants the people who already have
 what they need to help these others. We call this a "responsibility"
