During the month of February, the 5th grade class at Holy Rosary will be leading the school in the Corporal Work of Mercy: Pray for the Imprisoned. Students will make valentine cards that will be given to the residents of Good Samaritan Nursing Home and other shut-ins in our community. Then Deacon Tom Middleton, who is involved in Prison Ministry, will come and talk to the students. And finally, all dress down money that is collected will be donated to the Prison Ministry.
This prayer to St. Valentine inspired our project:
O St. Valentine, lover of Christ and of the Church, we ask your intercession that we may learn how to love God above all things, and to selflessly love one another. O glorious St. Valentine, pray for us, that we too may have the steadfast faith of the martyrs.
One of the extracurricular activities that we offer at Holy Rosary is Ski Club, run by volunteer Chad Barchard. It is a great opportunity for both beginners and experienced skiers/snowboarders alike, to learn new skills and to continue their progress. Our first trip for this season was held on Tuesday, February 4th and will continue each consecutive Tuesday through the 25th, weather permitting.
Another opportunity that is available to all 5th and 6th graders is the Passport Program, compliments of Ski Idaho, which allows all 5th and 6th graders to ski or ride 18 mountains for 18 bucks.
