From cross bearer to readers to singers, Sister Alexander Siegel, Mission Leader/Campus Minister, encouraged faculty and staff to volunteer to participate in this special celebration. Sister Alexander Siegel posed the question, “What if you used Snapchat or Instagram to capture 40 days of good deeds?” By using your love of social media, you can fill the world with good.”
During his homily, Rev. Thomas Jordan, O.Carm., shared a list of Lenten Resolutions and stated, “As well as giving up something for Lent, we can also take on something during Lent. We can make the effort to become more aware of being Christ-like in our normal situations. Such resolutions can be very life-giving. They require discipline.”
From the back of the church you could see the students get excited while listening to Rev. Thomas Jordan, O.Carm. They were engaged and gave him their full attention.
Sister Alexander Siegel and Rev. Thomas Jordan, O.Carm., blessed worshippers with a cross of ashes on their forehead as a symbol of penance.
The ICHS choir led by Mr. Michael Wada, Information Technology Coordinator and Director of Performing Arts, rocked the house with music that encouraged the girls to participate in his holy day of obligation.
Mr. Joseph R. Azzolino, Head of School, left everyone with the following message, “The world is filled with good and with God. You have 40 days to change the world!”
