Helping to Stop Hunger
St. Dominic Catholic Parish will be focusing their Lenten prayer and
activities on the theme of hunger. On March 5, Ash Wednesday, we will
begin our Lenten journey to include opportunities to live out the three
pillars of fasting, praying and almsgiving.
Hunger Games Challenge: A war is about to ensue! A
penny war! A penny war is a competition where coins are placed in
containers to earn points. Three containers will be located on the ledge
outside the school office. Every day, children and adults are encouraged
to share their loose change with the hungry.
- To earn points for your age group, put pennies in the container.
- To take points away from another group, put silver coins, paper
bills or checks into their container.
Pennies earn positive points, all others earn negative points. Every
Friday, the school totals will be counted and a running record of
pennies will be shared. Groups that post the highest penny amount will
get to have Arthur, our school knight, join them in class for the day.
- Container One: Wee Ones to 5th Graders
- Container Two: 6th Graders to High School Seniors
- Container Three: The Adults
