March 27, 2014 Thursday D Day
This week we will be conducting our monthly class meetings. If you are not in Mandatory Encore please be prompt so we can get through all material. Juniors on Thursday and Freshman on Friday.
Encore Communion Service for Lent? You are invited to the Encore communion service. Consider giving up a small part of your time during Lent for God.
Blood Apostles: Any blood apostle who has turned in their paper work may pick up their shirt from Fr. Tim.
Blood Drive: Our Lenten Blood Drive will take place next Tuesday, April 1. Please consider making an appointment and sign up with one of the Blood Apostles or in campus ministry. Any student who is 16 must obtain parental consent. Forms are in the main office; campus ministry; or on line. The average transfusion of blood takes 3 pints. Our goal is to get 120 pints on April Fools Day. Giving blood during Lent is a great way to put your faith into action and help someone else out. All it takes is your commitment and courage. Be a fool for Christ! Thank you for considering.
Attention Sophomores and Juniors!!! If you can remember who your Link Crew Leaders were from your freshman year, then you know what an impact they made on your high school experience. Be willing to PAY IT FORWARD by serving as a Link Crew leader for the Class of 2018. Pick up an application from Mrs. Ploesser in the Admissions Office. Applications are due by next Thursday, April 4th.
