 During the season of Lent, Grade 8 students will attend the 8 am Mass each Monday.  We are working to increase our personal prayer time (10 minutes each day), fasting (giving up something that we really like) and giving alms to those in need.  Our GSC school Lenten activity is to contribute to Philabundance by bringing in loose change.  Each class has a container for the change.  All contributions of CHANGE will be very welcome!
