The annual Lenten Mission Drive is underway. This donation drive, organized by the office of ministry and service, benefits missions in Africa supported by our school's two founding orders, the Marianists and Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.
Collections this year will be split equally and donated to both Our Lady of the Nazareth Elementary School, a Marianist mission in Kenya, and the Sisters of Notre Dame Clean Water Project. Students learned more about each of these missions in their religion classes.
You can support the Lenten Mission Drive through any of the following activities taking place in the weeks leading up to Easter:
Men's Volleyball Game
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 26
Eagles fans can cheer on the men's volleyball team at home against Alter on Wednesday, March 26 in Mary, Our Lady of Victory Gymnasium. Proceeds from admissions and concessions will be donated. The JV begins at 6 p.m. followed by the varsity at 7 p.m. Fans of both schools are encouraged to wear purple.
