St. Jude Family,
Tomorrow is going to be a very exciting day for a few reasons. You probably are thinking about the fact that it is the last day of school before our Easter break and that is certainly one reason. However, we have a Faith Rally planned for tomorrow as well, which is going to be a wonderful way to kick off our Easter break and get ready for Holy week. I encourage your family to attend the Holy Week services here at St. Jude:
Tuesday, April 16: Confessions at 7:15 p.m.
Thursday, April 18: Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:30 p.m.
Friday, April 19: Celebration of the Lord’s Passion at 3:00 p.m.; Stations of the Cross at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 20: Blessing of Food at 10:00 a.m.; Easter Vigil at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 21: Mass of the Resurrection at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 12:00 p.m.
I look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Thursday, April 25th.
Given the Easter break, this will be the last newsletter until May 2nd.
