Celebrating the Season of Lent

emclaughlin Head of School, News

The school community gathered on Wednesday morning to celebrate the beginning of the Lenten season with a liturgy.  I thought about my word choice in that opening sentence – celebrate may seem like a less appropriate verb choice as we enter the Lenten season.  My choice is deliberate though, and echoed by Mount Alvernia’s Campus Minister, Mrs. McCourt, who announced enthusiastically at the end of mass that she “LOVES Lent”.  As Mrs. McCourt continued to speak she expressed exactly what I was feeling about Lent – it’s an opportunity, and we should celebrate opportunities.  Lent provides an opportunity to live a bit more intentionally.

One means of appreciating the season is to intentionally think about the needs of others during Lent.  The Campus Ministry program at Mount Alvernia is sponsoring a Lenten Toiletry Drive to benefit The Second Step.  “The Second Step fosters the safety, stability, and well-being of survivors of domestic violence.  Its residential and community-based programs build on the strengths, needs and values of the individuals and families that it serves.  In partnership with survivors and in collaboration with the community, TSS lays a foundation for a future free from abuse and full of possibility.  TSS also works to address the root causes of domestic violence and end it in our time.”  

From March 1st through April 7th Mount Alvernia High School will be collecting donations to help these women and their children.  In the past, we have collected travel-sized items for distribution at the Pine Street Inn, but this year we are looking for full sized items to provide a helping hand to mothers who are often coming to The Second Step with just the clothes on their backs.   

7th and 8th grade students are asked to donate toothpaste

9th grade students are asked to donate deodorant

10th grade students are asked to donate shampoo

11th grade students are asked to donate conditioner

12th grade students are asked to donate feminine hygiene products

Thank you in advance for supporting this endeavor, but also for reminding your daughters that this opportunity to provide for others in need also gives each of us an opportunity to express our gratitude for all that we have.
