School Lenten Giving Project

  • “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” – Psalm 51:10
  • This year’s Lenten Project is a simple and creative way for St. Christopher students to develop “a clean heart…and…a new and right spirit” while working on a “clean” project.
  • Parishioners Dan and Lea Craine are laundromat owners and assured us their guests will be moved and brightened by our project.
  • We will make “Clean Kits” and the Craines will distribute them in their laundromats.
  • Students should make their kits at home and then bring the completed kits to school.
  • Please make as many or as few kits as you like.
  • The kits should be made in Ziploc baggies and should contain:
    • Quarters
    • Soap Pods
    • Dryer Sheets
    • A sweet treat to eat while waiting on laundry
    • A homemade blessing card (notes of encouragement and joyful thoughts or pictures drawn and colored)
  • Students can drop off their kits in the laundry basket located in the school lobby.
  • The deadline is April 14th. 

St. Patrick, pray for us!
Mr. O’

St. Christopher School Principal
