Lenten Food Drive continues this week!!
Shrine students have a long tradition of being generous to others in need. As we begin our 2014 Lenten journey, we ask you to continue that tradition of generosity and kindness.  Our food collection this Lent will be very similar to the 2013 collection.  Four teams have been established to collect very specific items in preparation for the BIG BUILD at our Holy Week Lenten Prayer Service on Thursday, April 16.

Freshmen/Sophomores-  peanut butter and boxed Mac & Cheese
Juniors/Seniors- canned fruit and boxed cereal
Items are being collected in the Religion classrooms.

Congratulations to the following students in the Junior Class on their winning essays for the Vocations Essay Contest- 1st Place- Ketura Webb; 2nd place Anthony Bolton; Honorable Mention Emily Bonnell, Megan Sparks, Mallory Stinebaugh, Reilly Carr, Alaina Burt, Tess Carolan, and Abigail Bernhard.

A message from the Cobbledick Family

Kelly, Mike, the Kalpins and I, would like to extend the warmest of all heartfelt thank you to the entire community. There is no way that we can communicate how thankful we are for the love, prayers,dinners, help, and support that you have continually showed us throughout Kathy’s illness and recent passing.It is remarkable, but not surprising, that the community has exactly replicated Kathy’s character in the love and care you have all shown. Kathy often was overwhelmed with the love you showed her and truly appreciated the numerous expressions of care that were extended. While she wanted to personally thank each and every one of you, even Kathy couldn’t pull that off. Please know that she was always aware just how special the Shrine community is and how blessed we are to be a part of it. May God bless you and your families.

Jim Cobbledick
