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.
Gracious God,
We ask you to bless all people involved in the clothing industry.
Bless the farmers, the weavers, the seamstresses, the shippers, the store clerks.
May the manufacturing process be just and fair to all workers.
May the selling be priced and available so everyone can afford what they need.
We pray in Jesus’ name,
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.

Thursday’s theme is CLOTHING.
Decent clothing is essential and helps keep kids in school: 30% of homeless children in the U.S. are out of class because they lack access to decent or warm clothing. Please bring in one new or gently-worn clothing item to donate to Sharing and Caring Hands.

The Catholic Diocese of Nakuru, Kenya, opened Mwangaza College, formerly Bishop Ndingi Skills Training Centre, in 1992 for post-secondary training with two departments: business, and tailoring and dressmaking. It later expanded to include accounting, fashion and design, hairdressing, information technology, and foodservice. The Christian Brothers assumed direction of the school in 1993 and through the Twinning Program, Mwangaza was matched with DeLaSalle, Minneapolis.
We support our Twin School with prayer and financial assistance. Money raised from the sale of out-of-uniform wrist bands will go directly to Mwangaza which continues to have courses in clothing manufacturing.

Students may be out of uniform today (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.
