Students raise $458 during Lenten collection

Thank you to all the students and families who contributed to the school’s Lenten collection. The money collected was donated to St. Michael School in Nigeria.  St. Michael School is in desperate need of assistance for their building and essential school supplies.

Acts 20:35 – In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

God Bless our students for their generosity and we pray for the students at St. Michael School in Nigeria.
