Dear St. Michael Preschool Families,
I hope that the start of this Lenten season has provided you time for meaningful prayer and reflection. We want to sincerely thank our pastor, Fr. Michael Burbeck, for his continued spiritual direction and for leading a lovely Ash Wednesday prayer service. Even though it looked different this year, our preschoolers and teachers were able to receive a sprinkling of ashes to begin our Lenten journey together.
As we approach the second Sunday in Lent, let us remember that we are preparing our hearts for the Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. In class, your child is learning about Jesus’ Passion and Resurrection through a meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum. Please look for the daily teacher communications and ask your child to share their learning with you. Also, your child made a special Lenten Prayer Pot in class. Please look for the instructions in this newsletter so your family can find weekly inspiration for how to be more like Jesus and grow closer to God. Additionally, you will learn of two opportunities to grow through almsgiving during Lent with the CRS Rice Bowl and the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon. We thank you in advance for your giving hearts!
May the 40 days of Lent be a time of meaningful reflection for us all and a time to “show and tell” our love and gratitude for each other every day.

Lisa Ciesla, Director
