Embers Fasts for Life!

Join Relevant Radio in a worldwide initiative to advocate for the unborn. You can make a difference by participating in bringing about a culture of life from your very own home! Click here to find out how!

Embers invites your Sparks to unite their prayers and special sacrifice for the unborn. Embers will be praying an All-School Rosary and asks that our Sparks consider fasting on Friday, January 29. 

Your child/ren can fast in the following ways:

  • Pack only half-portion of a snack or lunch
  • Omit the ‘sweet’ part of lunch
  • Drink water instead of milk for lunch

Report Cards

Report cards will be sent home with your children next Friday, January 29 in their blue Friday Folders.
