Week of 3/8/2015

Hello club,

Congratulations again to our new CSA co-presidents Marissa Henry (NJ) and Meha Verghese (NJ), and our new CSA CFO Justin Labonte (NJ)!

If you are still thinking about what to give up or do this Lenten season, see here for a list of suggestions compiled by your CSA exec. Feel free to add your own to the list!  Lord, you fasted forty days and forty nights: direct our Lenten penance. Lord, you refused the temptations of the Evil One: guard us against the temptations that assail us. Lord, you remained ever faithful and obedient: grant us fidelity to our Lenten practice. Amen.

Please see below for club announcements.  As always, you can find the below information and more on our CSA website: http://csahbsclub.com/

We look forward to seeing you at Mass this Sunday!

Best,

Your CSA Exec Team
