Today your child should have brought home a Mite Box.  Mite boxes are meant to collect money for young men who are considering a vocation to the priesthood.  Encourage your children to put any money they earn through chores or money they get as an allowance or present towards their Mite box during the season of Lent.  This is a great way to teach your children the practice of almsgiving.

We ask for the Mite Boxes to be returned by Thursday, April 6 (Holy Thursday).  Thank you!
