1st Grade studied the life cycle of the butterfly. The activity was planned to coincide with the season of Lent so that students could make a connection to Jesus’ new life following His Resurrection. The class learned about the stages and development during the caterpillar’s transformation while waiting for each butterfly to emerge from its chrysalis. The butterflies were then released just before Easter!READ MORE

Very soon the holiest week of the year will be upon us. The important truth to remember is that Jesus is the Son of God who became human, for all of us. He suffered and died for everyone, even for those who betrayed or deserted him. Jesus has infinite love for all of us and we must remember we are always in the presence of God. Our spiritual lives may fluctuate. Sometimes we play the role of Judas, sometimes the role of the unsuspecting and uncomprehending disciple, sometimes the faithful follower. One thing does not change, though: God’s love for us. I’m so grateful that we have a God who loves us, forgives us, and understands the struggles we face in our lives. We are reminded, particularly during this Lenten and Easter season, that like us, Jesus struggled in his time on the earth but he found and provided for us ultimate redemption through his death on the cross. That is something to celebrate!
Catholic Easter Prayer: Lord, the resurrection of Your Son has given us new life and renewed hope. Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal. Grant us wisdom to know what we must do, the will to want to do it, the courage to undertake it, the perseverance to continue to do it, and the strength to complete it.
Dearest HTS Families,
I wish you peace, love and happiness at Easter and always. Enjoy time with your loved ones and friends as you celebrate the Risen Christ!
