It’s hard to believe this Sunday is already Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week, in which we remember Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem days before he was crucified. Today we read and talked about Palm Sunday. I also introduced the children to our Resurrection Eggs which we will be opening every day to help us learn about the story of Easter. We have many special activities planned as a school family next week. We will have our all school Seder Meal on Holy Thursday at 1:30, a Lenten retreat in the morning on Good Friday followed by “Mary’s Way of the Cross” in church at 12:45. Our 8th grade buddies have been working very hard in preparation for their Good Friday presentation of “Mary’s Way of the Cross,” a dramatization of Jesus’ carrying of the cross and crucifixion as seen from Mary’s perspective. You are welcome to join us in church next Friday if you are available. This is my favorite part of Holy Week at St. Rose School. Our 8th grade students always do such a beautiful job! We hope you can join us. We will dismiss at 1:30 and there will be NO EXTENDED CARE.
