Today was a very busy day for us at Holy Cross. This morning we had a priest fly in to hold Ash Wednesday Services for the school. Three different services were held for the various grade levels. A lot of singing, clapping and sounds of Amen were heard in the cafeteria all day. The priest was very generous with the ashes and we all had large black crosses on our foreheads. The children seemed very prepared for the Lenten season and were able to answer numerous questions. It was a very special beginning for the next forty days.

Sandra has very gratefully handed the blog over to Scott and Kathy, she has been so busy. This also gives Scott something productive to do and occupy his time.
We got some random pictures from previous days and thought we would just post them today. Tomorrow, Friday will be the Valentine's Fair here at Holy Cross, this will be fun for all as well as a fund raiser for the school.
