Res Students Kick Off Catholic School Week by Serving Others

Resurrection's National Honor Society and other students who volunteered to help them, kicked off Catholic Schools Week with a service project.  The students came together on Sunday, January 27th and made 300 sack lunches for "Uncle Pete's Ministry."  The mission of "Uncle Pete's Ministry" is to serve the less fortunate, to create awareness of those in need, and provide the poor with hope.
Truly another example of how the young women of Resurrection understand the message of Christ and "go out to share it."

Day of Special Prayer

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has designated today, January 22nd as a Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.

It is hard to believe that there have been over 56 million abortions in the United States since the 1973 decisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.  It is heartbreaking to realize how many human lives have been thrown away. 

Let us pray:  For every little child, and especially for those who live in their mother's womb:  that they might be loved, protected, and given the chance to grow in the image and likeness of the God who made them and treasures them.

The Kindness Campaign Continues During the Holiday Season at Resurrection!

Grazie di Cuore - Italian Classes Count Their Blessings

Resurrection Italian classes celebrated the theme for the month of November.  "Count Your Blessings."  All students taking Italian participated in creating a bulletin board entitled Grazia di Cuore (thank you with all my heart).  Students made unique and personal bookmark banners in Italian, including a picture and indicating what they are grateful for in their lives.  Ms. Saponaro and her students found the project uplifting.

Campus Ministry Baby Food Drive

In conjunction with Thanksgiving, Campus Ministry hosted a Baby Food Drive to help low income families and single mothers provide happier holidays for their little ones.

Anastasias and Locker Notes

The Anastasias made little notes of encouragement and posted them on the lockers with the hope that each Resurrection student would feel respected and cared about.  Here are a few samples.

Watch for more later this week!
