Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of the Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

We begin the Lenten Season this week with Ash Wednesday. This is a wonderful time of the year to teach our school children about the life of Christ, the suffering, the death, and the meaning of all as it brings the glory of the Easter Resurrection. Our children see the battered body of Jesus hanging on the crucifix each day as we pray. To make sense of it all requires the mind of a genius and the faith of angel. Yet, when a child gazes upon this site, they are able to ask the most sophisticated questions and have the most inquisitive curiosity about our salvation.  They can clearly see good and evil at work. We give them the opportunity to dig deep throughout their years at our school. The SWS students develop a solid and lasting base from which they will find themselves pulling from over and over again as life’s journey brings them to many places. 

In the weeks ahead, our SWS students will lead prayer for their classes and the entire school, will walk the path of the stations in various formats, will give alms to the poor, will participate in confession, and will say the Rosary, will attend adoration, and will study, learn, sacrifice, and focus on Jesus.
