    Good morning, SAS families!


    Today is Holy Thursday, which begins the Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday) leading up to the most joyous celebration of Easter!  I pray that your family is able to find ways to keep these days holy, even though we are not able to physically go to church.  Here are the Holy Week resources from Saint Agnes Parish.


    Here is today's Morning Prayer.  


    Tomorrow morning, I will be sending out the link to the Virtual Stations of the Cross, made by SAS families and AC students.  I encourage your family to watch together sometime tomorrow in commemoration of Good Friday and Jesus' Passion and death.


    Today's fun activity suggestion isdo a family art project together!


    The Poem of the Day is: "Easter Joy" by Joanna Fuchs

    Jesus came to earth,
    To show us how to live,
    How to put others first,
    How to love and how to give.

    Then He set about His work,
    That God sent Him to do;
    He took our punishment on Himself;
    He made us clean and new.

    He could have saved Himself,
    Calling angels from above,
    But He chose to pay our price for sin;
    He paid it out of love.

    Our Lord died on Good Friday,
    But the cross did not destroy
    His resurrection on Easter morn
    That fills our hearts with joy.

    Now we know our earthly death,
    Like His, is just a rest.
    We'll be forever with Him
    In heaven, where life is best.

    So we live our lives for Jesus,
    Think of Him in all we do.
    Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
    Help us love like you!
