  • 04/18/2019 Observing Holy Week at Annunciation


    School Events, Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    In their Spanish classes students at Annunciation have been learning about how people in Guatemala celebrate Semana Santa (Holy Week). They have discovered that some people make alfombras (rugs) out of sawdust, seeds and flowers to decorate the streets.  During Holy Week processions, these beautiful artwork rugs get destroyed as a symbol of sacrifice. Students at Annunciation took action by working with their buddies to design and create alfombras using chalk outside the school.  After their artwork was completed, we walked together as a school over our alfombras as our own sacrifice.
     
    We hope you can join the Annunciation community during Holy Week and Easter to celebrate the most holy time in our Catholic church. The schedule is here:

    As we enter the Triduum, we pray for God’s blessings on each of us.
    May you have……..
    The Gladness of Easter, which is Hope.
    The Promise of Easter, which is Peace.
    The Spirit of Easter, which is Love.

    God Bless,

    Jennifer M. Cassidy,
    Principal
