Moreau Supports Cardinal Newman with Lenten Project
Posted 03/05/2018 02:41PM

Moreau Catholic High School's Campus Ministry is leading the way this Lenten season with three outreach projects to raise awareness of the needs around us.

First, students are selling #CardinalStrong wristbands at school to support Cardinal Newman High School (CNHS), which was severely damaged in last year's Tubbs fire. So far, nearly 150 Moreau students have purchased the special wristbands. All funds collected through their $5 per band fundraiser will be forwarded to CNHS to supplement ongoing relief and rebuilding efforts.

"We were inspired by the strong sense of community and hope at Cardinal Newman after the fires raged through their school," said Moreau Catholic High School Principal Lisa Tortorich. "The school is still in great need or our support as there is a long road to rebuilding the school."

"Never before has so much faith and resilience been more evident than through this disaster," said Laura Held, President of Cardinal Newman High School. "Our community is strong and we have much gratitude for the outreach given to us. We are building a new future – better than ever."

The Campus Ministry Team's second project includes donation boxes in the theology classrooms for students to give spare change for Operation Red Bowl that benefits countries around the world.

Their third Lenten outreach project is a weekly lunch-time celebration of reflection and prayer that began on February 16. "Enlarge Your Heart: A Holy Cross Pilgrimage Through Lent" aims to focus attention on the important aspect of our lives and reminds teachers, staff and students that the spiritual life on campus is something that can be built together.
