The Sentinel – March 22, 2017

Principal’s Message

This week we are half way through our Lenten journey, an ideal moment to pause and reflect on how we are growing in our relationship with Christ during this sacred time.  Walking through the hallways, there is much inspiration to be found in the displays created by the children that remind us of the season and that highlight the sacrifices they are each making.  From cleverly designed license plates to paper shoes that represent the “walk with Jesus”, the bulletin boards give us a glimpse into the hearts of the children and their desire to live the Gospel – a source of inspiration for all of us during our Lenten journey.
