8th Graders - During this week let us look at how well we accomplished our Lenten Promise/Sacrifice? If it is one you really wanted to succeed with, look for ways to continue that effort. Maybe part of you will be born new as Jesus experienced at Easter. That was the point of His death and resurrection - to let us live it today knowing that we can be "born again" as a new version of ourselves - IF we choose to and ask HIM for help.
HAPPY EASTER for the next ~ 40 DAYS
