Lent 2020

Mardi-Gras Bake Sale & Carnevale – On Tuesday, February 25, 2020 to kick off our Operation Rice Bowl drive, Outreach and the Italian Club will be sponsoring a Bake Sale and Mardi Gras mask cookie decorating contest. All proceeds will go to our Operation Rice Bowl drive. Operation Rice Bowl will continue until April 7th.

Operation Rice Bowl
We will again be participating in the Catholic Relief Services’ “Operation Rice Bowl.” For over 40 years, Operation Rice Bowl has called participants to pray with their families and faith communities; fast in solidarity with those who hunger; learn about our global community and the challenges of poverty overseas, and give sacrificial contributions to those in need. This year’s theme is “For Lent For Life.” Each week will focus on a Principle of Catholic Social Teaching. The Principles that will be highlighted are Life and Dignity of the Human Person, Option for the Poor and Vulnerable, Call to Family, Community and Participation, and Solidarity.

Every Friday in Lent at Holy Angels is fast day. We invite our school community to fast in solidarity with those who suffer from poverty and hunger in our global family. Donation boxes will be set up in the Student Commons to donate the money that would have been spent on a dessert or treat. We invite you as a family to join us in prayer, fasting and giving alms throughout Lent by participating with us in Operation Rice Bowl. All students will receive a rice bowl to bring home to collect donations throughout Lent. Boxes should be returned to their religion teachers or the Campus Ministry Office after Easter. Each homeroom will also have a homeroom Operation Rice Bowl. Last year we raised almost $2,000.00 through Operation Rice Bowl.
