As the war in the Ukraine continues, St. Francis of Assisi Academy would like to take part in a school-wide Lenten Good Works Project. Change for Chalice is an opportunity for students to respond to a crisis and support humanitarian needs in the Ukraine. On Friday we held a whole school assembly explaining that St. Francis lived a life of service and love to people. He teaches us that we are blessed when we show our love to those who are far away from us, as much as we do for those that are near us. Change for Chalice Ukraine starts next week March 21st-March 24th. Monday, March 21st-Bring in Change $ Change for Chalice is an opportunity for students to give of their own savings (piggy bank change for younger kids. Maybe something more for older kids). Students can also work with parents to do something kind to earn change that they can donate. Please give what you can!

Wednesday, March 23rd- Perogy Day/Bake Sale Perogy Day by Donation-School Council will be cooking up Ukrainian perogies for students to enjoy.
