Raven Rundown, 3/27/24

March 27, 2024
Happy Easter, SRLA!
Today, under the direction of Sister Sandy, the 8th Grade helped to prepare our beautiful church for the holiest of weeks in the liturgical calendar. As we prepare for the Resurrection of Christ, many things are renewed. Our 8th Grade helped collect all the holy water stationed at the front and sides of the church and placed it in the baptismal font, which was then emptied through the piping system into the sacred ground of the cemetery. They also buried the sacramental Oils of the Sick and Chrism oils that have have been used throughout the year into the ground of the cemetery. Finally, they ended with a prayer and the removal of most of the host from the tabernacle.
We wish the entire SRLA family and community a Happy Easter and restful break!
March Madness Winners
