Faith in Action - Global Lenten Project
As a Lenten act of service and almsgiving, Prince of Peace School is raising money to purchase items from Chalice's Gift Catalogue. Chalice is a Catholic international aid charity focused on child, family, and community development. They work to provide care for the many children and families caught in poverty. Items from the catalogue bring empowerment and an opportunity for self-sustainability to families and communities in countries around the world. Please check out chalice.ca for more info as we come together as a school community.
Buddy Classes will decide online what item(s) they would like to collect donations to purchase. For example, some groups might consider purchasing a goat for a family for $75, sport balls to use at school for $10, school supplies etc. Students are asked to do chores at home to earn donations such as shoveling snow, emptying the dishwashers, taking out garbage, etc. Our Lenten Project begins on Monday, February 22nd and we will collect donations until Friday, March26th.
We look forward to updating you on our Faith in Action almsgiving Lenten project.
