This Thursday we will kick off Operation Rice Bowl in the school. There will be an all-school prayer service in the gym at 9:30 to help the children become familiar with how they can incorporate Operation Rice Bowl into their Lenten plans. Following the assembly, students will receive a cup of rice as a snack, generously donated by Habaneros. Cardboard Rice Bowls and information will be coming home. Please consider helping your child participate in collecting for Catholic Relief Services through the Operation Rice Bowl Program.

ARCHBISHOP SCHNURR ON RESIGNATION OF POPE
Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr had this reaction today to the resignation of the Holy Father:
“In announcing his resignation, Pope Benedict XVI has acted humbly and unselfishly for the good of the Church. That same spirit has characterized his entire life of service.
“I will always remember Pope Benedict as he described himself on the day of his election as pope in 2005 – ‘a simple, humble laborer in the vineyard of the Lord.’ When I was in Rome during the period that he was a prominent cardinal, I frequently would see him in St. Peter’s Square, mingling with the crowds in the simple black cassock of a priest. Often he was asked by groups of tourists, undoubtedly assuming that he was one of the local priests, to take their picture. This he would do willingly and with a generous smile.
“In my several encounters with him I found this brilliant theologian to be unfailingly kind, hospitable and welcoming. Ultimately he was a very pastoral man who won the hearts of all Americans on his pastoral visit to the United States in 2008. I will be forever grateful to him for naming me Archbishop of Cincinnati.
“Along with the Church around the world I pray for his health and happiness in retirement.”
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati is the 38th largest Catholic diocese in the country, with almost 500,000 Catholics, and has the seventh largest network of Catholic schools in terms of enrollment. The 19-county territory includes 214 parishes and 114 Catholic primary and secondary schools.
