The Season Of Lent & Project Compassion

The season of Lent commenced for Sacred Heart with the celebration of Mass on Ash Wednesday. Traditionally, lent has been a season of fasting and prayer. Lent is also a time to be kind and generous. In 2013, Project Compassion carries the message: “Open doors into the future”. The Matuba Children’s Centre in Mozambique, run by Caritas Chowke, offers orphaned and vulnerable children food, clean water, educational support, livelihood training and a place where they can be safe, happy and healthy. Max and Hailee represented our school at St Mary’s Cathedral for the Launch of Project Compassion where they received a candle and a box for our school. Families had a box sent home last week which also enables them to support Project Compassion during Lent.
