Very soon the holiest week of the year will be upon us. The important truth to remember is that Jesus is the Son of God who became human, for all of us. He suffered and died for everyone, even for those who betrayed or deserted him. Jesus has infinite love for all of us and we must remember we are always in the presence of God. Our spiritual lives may fluctuate. Sometimes we play the role of Judas, sometimes the role of the unsuspecting and uncomprehending disciple, sometimes the faithful follower. One thing does not change, though: God’s love for us. I’m so grateful that we have a God who loves us, forgives us, and understands the struggles we face in our lives. We are reminded, particularly during this Lenten and Easter season, that like us, Jesus struggled in his time on the earth but he found and provided for us ultimate redemption through his death on the cross. That is something to celebrate!
Catholic Easter Prayer: Lord, the resurrection of Your Son has given us new life and renewed hope. Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal. Grant us wisdom to know what we must do, the will to want to do it, the courage to undertake it, the perseverance to continue to do it, and the strength to complete it.
Dearest HTS Families,
I wish you peace, love and happiness at Easter and always. Enjoy time with your loved ones and friends as you celebrate the Risen Christ!

We instill in our students the teachings of the Catholic Church, which are rooted in the Gospel, and model these teachings by forming authentic relationships with parents, faculty, staff, parishioners, and others in our community. We empower our students to become active and creative 21st century learners equipped with skills to thrive in today’s changing world. We imbue them with a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and nurture them to be advocates for Catholic social teaching according to the Gospels of Jesus Christ.
The season of Lent is a Catholic liturgical season consisting of forty days not including the Sundays during Lent; only weekdays of fasting, prayer, and penitence beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding at sundown on Holy Thursday. Lent ends at this time because the Triduum is a liturgical season; the shortest of all seasons in the Church. The Triduum is a three-part celebration beginning with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, continuing with The Celebration of the Lord’s Passion on Good Friday, and concluding with the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday. The Triduum ends with the beginning of the Easter Vigil.
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence for adults 18 until 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The abstinence from eating meat are from age 14 and older.READ MORE
