Haiti Update

Thank you to all who participated in our March fundraisers for teacher training in Haiti.  In March, Black Model UN and Angels Over Africa sponsored a St. Patrick’s Day themed photo booth and Student Athletic Association sponsored Hoops for Haiti and we received a donation in honor of Sr. Diane Driscoll for St. Joseph’s Day. Latin Honor Society also sponsored Pin the Caesar and a Jeans Pass.   Our current total for teacher training is $4,400.49. We sent $3,000.00 to sponsor our first teacher and we are almost at the halfway point to sponsor another teacher. Look in the weekly email for future fundraising events.

Lent 2019

Mardi-Gras Bake Sale & Carnevale

On Tuesday, March 5, 21019 to kick off our Operation Rice Bowl drive, Outreach and the Italian Club sponsored a Bake Sale as well as a basket raffle sponsored by Italian Club.  The proceeds of $309.42 were divided between Teacher Training in Haiti and Operation Rice Bowl. Operation Rice Bowl will continue until April 17th. As of March 26th we have collected over $500.00 to be donated to CRS.

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 “Encounter Lent.”  Each week will focus on a country that will be aided by Operation Rice Bowl and a Principle of Catholic Social Teaching. This year the countries being highlighted are: Guatemala, Uganda, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone and Gaza. 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, Rights and Responsibilities and the Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers.

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.

Reconciliation Service

Our annual reconciliation service will take place on Monday, April 1, 2019.  Following the prayer service students will have the opportunity for individual confessions.

Easter Liturgy

Our annual Easter Liturgy will be celebrated on Friday, May 3, 2019 our presider will be Rev. Stephen Fichter pastor of St. Elizabeth of Hungary parish in Wyckoff, NJ.  We are honored to have the grandparents join us at this Liturgy.
