JOIN US FOR EUCHARISTIC ADORATION ON FRIDAYS Every Friday, the Blessed Sacrament is placed out for veneration and prayer from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. To reach the Adoration Chapel, enter the church through the Claremont door, walk up the stairs, turn to the left and then to the left again. Walk down the passage behind the altar and enter the former baptistery where the Eucharist is exposed for veneration. Help us keep vigil with the Lord by making some time on Fridays for these beautiful moments of prayer. This is a wonderful way to feel closer to God. Visitors are asked to register in the sign-in book in the chapel when attending.

|THIRD GRADE BAKE SALE OFFERS GOODWILL TO NEEDY
Preheat the oven, gather the ingredients and grab a mixing bowl. It’s time to bake for the Queen of Angels Third Grade Bake Sale on Tuesday, March 8 in Room 208. The third graders are hosting this all-school bake sale as their service project. All proceeds will be donated to the Holy Childhood Association, which connects children like ours at Queen of Angels to children in need around the world.
Please bring cookies, brownies, muffins and other goodies to Room 208 on Monday, March 7 or March 8. Please be sure to individually package your baked goods and clearly note if your baked goods are made with nuts. Students who donate to the bake sale will be rewarded with an out-of-uniform day on a later date.
SPRED: PETER NEEDS A FRIEND Catechists and friends of the three Queen of Angels SPRED communities are now basking in the joy of our SPRED family mass last weekend. The experience of the welcoming parish community and the memory of the liturgical celebration will enrich our sharing as we gather in coming weeks. A good experience of catechesis is grounded in rich liturgical experience. Our parish and our Pastor make those experiences a wonderful reality for us.
We hope the experience has touched many of you who were present. We hope the joy of our friends has touched your heart and perhaps moved you to consider becoming a participant in this program. One friend in our Thursday evening group is without a partner. Peter has been in SPRED for many years. He is discovering the value of lasting friendships as he lives with a disability that will challenge him for the rest of his life. Peter needs a partner who will show him respect and honor his life experiences. He needs someone who will walk in faith and help him to become more certain that God is with him always in his journey.
Come to the Parish Center one evening to observe what we do as we gather for our SPRED sessions with our friends. You will know right away if this is a program for you. Watch the session through a one-way window. No commitment is necessary until you have had time to see a session, meet some volunteers, meet Peter and pray about it.
We also have groups on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and we are always looking for new volunteers as people’s lives change and commitments end. Please call now to observe a session on March 1, 2 or 3, or March 15, 16, or 17. Please contact Julie Hess at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-539-3634.
GREEN TEAM SHOUT OUT FOR GREEN AWARD TO CUB SCOUTS Great work, Scouts! The Green Committee wants to give a big shout out to Cub Scout Pack 3894 and their Blue and Gold organizers. The Scouts showed their respect for our planet by switching to cloth tablecloths, buying metal utensils to be used at Pack events, bringing water bottles to use and recycling what they could. They really showed leadership and forward-thinking. We commend their efforts! If you know of another Queen of Angels group deserving a “Green” award, please contact the school.
The next Trash Free Tuesday is March 1. Get ready to go trash free and feel to practice with trash free lunches between now and then.
KNIGHTS KNEWS The Pep Rally and Pack the Gym Nights were very successful. Thanks to all of those who came out and cheered on our Knights. Your support gives a boost of confidence to our student athletes. There are still games left so please make time to come out and see our athletes do their best to represent Queen of Angels. It’s also the perfect time to check out the new gym floor, made possible through the efforts of all who contributed to the 2010 Annual Catholic Appeal with the support of the Athletic Board.
