Ash Wednesday falls on March 5 this year, which is only about a month away. Everest Academy and Collegiate High School will be celebrating Mass to begin the Lenten season for students and parents that morning. Help us prepare by sending in those dried palm branches that are tucked behind the crucifixes in your homes, and give them to the Boys’ and Girls’ School secretaries to give to religion teacher Theresa Radich. The palms will be burned to make the ashes to be distributed at Mass. (Remember, the old palms are blessed, so disposal requires either burning or burying them.) Thanks in advance to all who can help!
