Pray.  Fast.  Give Alms.

During the season of Lent, each of us are challenged to pray, fast and give alms.  We encourage each family to incorporate these important aspects of Lent into their daily, family lives.  At Blessed Sacrament, we will be participating in a variety of activities.  In addition, your child's homeroom teacher may have activities planned to help guide your child on a successful Lenten journey.
