Lenten Season

We embark on our Lenten journey together at St. Paul of the Cross School. It is a time for self-discovery as we remember how Jesus went into the desert for forty days and was tempted. During our Lenten experience, we pray more, eat less, and give to the poor to prepare ourselves for the Christ’s Resurrection at Easter!

We begin each Lent with an all-school assembly where we hear about the School/Parish Lenten Project. In addition, the students and faculty prepare and participate in prayer services and other service projects.

"Lent is a favorable season for opening the doors to all those in need and recognizing in them the face of Christ" -- Pope Francis

This year our Lenten Mission will take us to Tennessee. We will help people most in need at the St. John Paul II Catholic Mission in Rutledge, TN. Our mission will also take us closer to home to help people in need in the Chicagoland area through Uncle Pete's Ministry. Please read the events and activities below so that our Lenten Mission can call upon all of us to serve others in the spirit of our faith. Lenten Mission 2017 

We are truly grateful for the outpouring of support by our students and families who participated in the Uncle Pete's Ministries mission to help feed the homeless in the Chicago area on March 7th. To see more photos, please click here to go to our Facebook page. 

The Living Stations of the Cross 2016

We thank teachers Mrs. Dulski, Mrs. Galvin, Mrs. Gayford, and
their fourth grade students who brought

Living Stations2016the Easter Tridium to life for us. The studentsreenacted several scenes in
celebration of Easter, starting with the Last Supper. Following that, students
narrated and played out Jesus’ trial, the march to Calvary along with the 
death and rebirth of Christ. The fourth grade teachers organize the Living
Stations of the Cross every year. Mrs. Dulski said
"This was remarkable. It has left us so faith filled and joy filled."
