Our 2019 Lenten Project

posted Mar 20, 2019, 10:32 AM by Michelle McGarry

This year St Francis is continuing to support Chalice for our 2019 Lenten Project.  Chalice is a Catholic international aid charity organization based out of Nova Scotia. This group supports children, families and community development in many of the impoverished areas in our World. Last year we raised close to $2000.00 for food, water systems, farm animals, medical care, toiletries and the list goes on!  We are looking to match or beat that total this year!

To raise money, we have organized end-of-week-spirit days during Lent and ask that your child participate by dressing according to the theme and bringing a donation of $2 for each Spirit Day.

Friday March 22nd Wear Blue for Word Water Day & bring a reusable water bottle

Friday March 28th Twin Day: find a twin and dress the same!

Friday April 5th Sports Fan Day: Dress like you are going to a sports game!

Friday April 12th  Rock Star Day: Dress like you are ready to rock n' roll!

Thursday April 18th Grade Colour Day:

Kinder - Pink (Peace Innocence Love)

                                        Grade 1 - Purple (Wisdom as Mutual Care)
