Greetings SBPS Parents and Friends!

The Triduum is here! Happy Holy Thursday. I pray your Lenten season has been a time of renewal and inspiration. I hope all of you are able to make the most of St. Benedict Parish’s Holy Week observances. There so many great prayer opportunities to experience with your families. I’ll be at the Children’s Masses in the gym at 9:15AM and 10:45AM. It’s a great way to celebrate the Risen Jesus on Easter with your family. Please click on this link to see what is happening on the block: CLICK HERE FOR THE SCHEDULE.

The Parish also hosts the annual Easter Dinner for many members of our community who do not have family to enjoy and Easter Dinner. We are looking for food donations, volunteers and other needed items. Please click here to see all the ways your family can help support this parish tradition.

The school is off through Thursday, April 25. The teachers and staff are attending the National Catholic Education Association National Conference at McCormick Place on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please keep our teachers in your prayers as they grow professionally together.

For those travelling over the Easter Break, our prayers are with you for a safe journey. May you experience the joy of the Resurrection this Sunday.

Have a blessed week!

Ms. Rachel Gemo, Head of Parish School
