Lenten Reflections

We Run to Him - Read Full Article

Wednesday, March 16 – Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Lent

Daniel 3:14-20; Daniel 3:52-56; John 8:31-42

We Run to Him

“Return home and recount what God has done for you.” John 8:39

As the Lenten season is coming to an end we are facing a challenge.  We are so close but we are not there yet.  God calls upon us to respond to the challenge the utmost holiness, just as His son did for us.

When Jesus spoke to us, He acknowledged us as “Blessed are you.”  He sees the potential and knows our plan but we need to see His potential for us.  When we place our trust in Him we are faced with a challenge.  This challenge is at our fingertips as we approach the last week of Lent.  Let the Easter season be full of happiness and holiness by accepting Gods challenge for us today.

Delone Catholic is Latex-free!
Because of the increasing number of students who have allergic reactions to latex, through contact and through the air, Delone Catholic will use only products that are free from latex. We need the help of all parents and students to make sure that no latex balloon enters this school for birthday celebrations, for athletic senior recognition, for school dances or for any decoration throughout the school. For one of our students, this could be a life-threatening situation so everyone’s help is needed and appreciated.

Delone Catholic Practices Safety for those with Nut Allergies!
Items containing peanuts and other tree nuts may be brought to school for individual lunches, but we ask that after eating foods containing nuts, you thoroughly wash your hands and any surfaces you have come in contact with.
