Little Flower Celebrates Catholic Schools Week

By Staff | Jan 29, 2016

Catholic Schools – Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service is the theme of Catholic Schools Week January 31 Feb. 5, 2016. This is the 74th year Little Flower School has been educating children of Rugby and the surrounding area with faith, knowledge and service!

Small classroom communities with dedicated teachers explore together the importance of living the Christian life on a daily basis. Spiritual encounters and prayer are part of each day at school as well as the celebration of Mass each Friday morning.

Lots of learning is taking place inside the classroom and out, with various technology projects, art, music, religion, language arts, social studies, science and math projects expanding the students’ knowledge base.

Service is a large component of education at Little Flower School. Students and staff are continually reaching out to others in the spirit of Christ Jesus, including participation in Project Joy, serving at the altar for Mass, and the upcoming “Cookies for a Cause” fundraiser for the orphan children of Brazil with whom our Franciscan Sisters work.

The annual week of celebrating Catholic Education will begin on Sunday morning with the 10:30 Mass at Little Flower. Soon after Mass the fun will begin with the annual carnival at the Armory, from noon until 3:00 p.m. The Cake Walk, Bingo and other fun games and activities will be offered. Winning tickets can be accumulated for larger prizes. Lunch concessions will be available. Everyone is invited to attend!

Many exciting events are planned for the week at school. Monday the teachers and staff will be honored; Tuesday special guests will be invited for lunch at the cafeteria; Wednesday will feature “Cookies for a Cause”. Thursday is the ‘thank you’ to the community of Rugby and surrounding areas with a free Supper and Open House at the LFC School from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

New Friday activities this year will be a pilgrimage to the Holy Door at St. Ann’s Church in Belcourt during this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. The children will have a chance to visit another Catholic School, to pray together at the School Mass at St. Ann’s Church at 1:00 p.m. and to play together on a sledding hill! The week will close that Friday with a family dance in the evening at the Memorial Hall. All families from Little Flower Parish are invited; children must be accompanied by an adult.
