During Lent, Catholics make special efforts to pray, do penance, and do good deeds. While we are called to do good deeds every day of the year, we make a special effort during the season of Lent. During Lent we follow Jesus’ example of service.
Jesus provided for the hungry and cared for the sick. Like Jesus, we do our best to help other people who are in need. During this Lenten season our school is taking part in various collections to help those in our community and the inner city.

Coins for Uganda
Over 20 years ago, group of St. Francis Borgia parishioners went to Uganda to learn more about a parish in Uganda and pledge our financial and spiritual support. Our commitment as Catholics is to “teach all nations.” Whether we take a very active role or a passive one we are all reminded that we have a very important responsibility to respond to Christ’s call to “Go teach all nations.”
“Twinning” shows that we are all missionaries, whether we live in Uganda or Wisconsin, and we all have gifts to share.
Students will be collecting coins the last week in March to support our twinning parish in Uganda. They will also be learning about the culture and the school in our twinning organization over the course of the week.
