Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Like the prophet Isaiah’s vision of water in the desert,
we long for a vision of a world where no child dies of diarrhea,
where no mother spends hours walking to transport water,
where no school lacks sanitation.
Help us to create a world
where everyone has access to clean, refreshing drinking water.
Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

SOCIAL JUSTICE WEEK: BASIC NEEDS and BEYOND
During this week’s Social Justice Week, we will focus on four basic human needs –food, shelter, water, clothing– to better understand how we can implement components of charity and justice to work for positive change.

Students may be out of uniform tomorrow (Thursday) if they are wearing a $2 wristband that supports our Lasallian Twin School, the Mwangaza Center in Kenya.

 

Wednesday’s focus is WATER.
“Progress on Household Drinking WAter, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) 2000 – 2020”
The Joint Monitoring Programme Report (WHO and UNICEF)
www.unicef.org/press-releases
In 2020, about 1 in 4 people lacked safely managed drinking water in their homes and nearly half the world’s population lacked safely managed sanitation.
If current trends persist, billions of children and families will be left without critical, life-saving WASH services, stating that by 2030:
• Only 81% of the world’s population will have access to safe drinking water at home, leaving 1.6 billion without;
• Only 67% will have safe sanitation services, leaving 2.8 billion without;
• And only 78% will have basic handwashing facilities, leaving 1.9 billion without.

Tuesday’s theme is SHELTER. Thanks for making tie blankets for My Very Own Bed.

Monday’s topic is FOOD. As part of our awareness of how many people live with food insecurity, we’re holding a food collection drive. Each grade has been assigned a needed item:
• 9th grade: Fruit (canned fruit, apple sauce, snack packs)
• 10th grade: Veggies (canned vegetables)
• 11th grade: Grains (pasta, rice, tortillas)
• 12th grade: Protein (peanut butter, beans, canned meat)
• Staff: Soups
Thank you for being generous as we pray and work for an end to hunger.  Items are still needed.
