Schedule 2, Liturgy
This week SUA’s Lenten Service Project doesn’t ask for your time or soup cans. It does ask each one of us to look at HOW we spend money and WHAT we spend money on. It asks us to consider buying everything we need to live according to the idea of Fair Trade.
Fair Trade means that those people who produce the food we eat or the clothes we wear earn a fair price for their labor. Fair Trade practices give farmers and artisans worldwide a voice in how business is done, preserves the natural environment, and puts more control of the market in the hands of producers and consumers, not corporate interests.
St. Ursula will have our own Fair Trade Sale today and tomorrow. This three-day event will take place in the Senior Lounge during all 3 lunches and seminars each day. Wednesday will be a “chocolate only” day, but Thursday & Friday we expand the sale. All students, faculty, and even parents will have their chance to shop for fair trade products like jewelry, purses, scarves, skirts, gifts, and chocolate right here in our building. This is a great way to stuff the Easter basket of someone you love with a beautiful, tasty Fair Trade product!
Please support this Fair Trade event and listen to the announcements all week on buying Fair Trade!
Model UN is looking forward to next year! St. Ursula will be selecting our countries for next year's competition SOON. With a deposit of $75.00, a completed registration form, and a list of your top 3 country choices you, too, can be part of the Model United Nations delegation in 2015.
You can choose to join now (and know your country over the summer) or you can wait until fall - we'll select more countries from the left-over list after Club Day in September. However, we will only select as many countries for which we have deposit-paying delegates. See Ms. Hodge in room 130 for more information.
St. Francis is offering a lifeguarding class for anyone 15 years or older. The first meeting is scheduled for this Sunday, 4/13, from 3-6 p.m. in the Natatorium. A swim test will be given that day, so be sure to bring a bathing suit and towel. There will be 4 more classes after that. The cost is $145. For more details, please see Mrs. Hensien in the Main Office.
