“Jars of Clay”

Courtesy photos “Jars of Clay” were the focus of the reconciliation service held on Ash Wednesday at St. Francis kick-started Lent. Students from preschool up to the senior class gathered in the gym to listen as Father Wayne Pavela read from scripture and explained the importance of service and the way the “jars of clay” theme shows the importance of serving others through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving this Lenten season. During the Last Supper Jesus humbled himself in service to the disciples by washing their feet using a jar of clay to hold the water. We can use his example of selflessness as we start our journey through the desert of Lent on the way to the oasis of Easter. Father Wayne then separated the students into to groups for the activity, which included discussion and drawing of clay jars and filling them with ways to serve others throughout this Lenten season. After the posters were complete and the preschoolers were antsy all grades had joined once more for a final prayer and then sent off to serve one another.
