Comet News - Thursday, February 28
As we come to the culminating events of the Carnival Season, we'd like to take a moment to remind you of the reason for our festivities--namely, the season of Lent. Lent is a season of sacrifice & penance meant to bring us closer to the Lord as we learn to detach from this world and cling to the next. Remember that over break, Ash Wednesday will take place, and we're called as Catholics to fast on this special day. We're also encouraged to atted Mass and receive ashes as a way of marking our commitment to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in the coming days.
Once we return from break, we'll be observing Lent through many special events here on campus. Our Campus Ministry will hold a Lent Lock-in on March 15-16. A school-wide Reconciliation Service and a Living Stations of the Cross will be attended by all students, and in Religion class, students will visit the chapel each Friday to participate in the Way of the Cross.
We hope that this Lenten season will be spiritually fruitful for all members of the SCC community. Stay safe and smart this Mardi Gras, and prepare the way of Lord in your heart.

Rice Bowl Kick Off
SCC is kicking off the annual Rice Bowl fundraiser this week. What a great way to consider giving alms this Lenten season!
Daniel Mumini from Catholic Relief Services traveled all the way from Freetown, Sierra Leone, to speak with all religion classes about the work that CRS does all over the world and about how our students can help the foundation's efforts through the Lenten Rice Bowls campaign.
After his presentation in the chapel, Mr. Mumini had the students participate in a "Water Bucket on the Head" challenge to illustrate some of the stories from his talk. Students were very engaged and enjoyed Mr. Mumini's visit!
Rice Bowls will be distributed in all Religion classes and are due back by Wednesday, April 17.
Stories of Grace Workshop in New Orleans
St. Charles Catholic High School, along with 100 other Archdiocesan youth programs and schools, participated in the “Stories of Grace” workshop offered for teenagers of our region.
SCC representatives Sara St. Pierre and Calvin Trinh learned how to share their stories of grace. The goal of the workshop was for our young people to learn how to share their own personal stories of faith so that all of the Archdiocese's high schools and youth ministries can be places of Witness. We're so proud of Sara and Calvin for their personal testimonies to the power of Christ!
The students got a surprise visit from Archbishop Gregory Aymond who offered a special blessing for this important ministry. What a great gift of a day!
