Next week is Holy Week, and contrary to what our American culture (and many Christians) believe, this is the highest and holiest week of the church year. It is Easter (Resurrection Sunday), not Christmas, that is the holiest day of the church year. In preparation for celebrating Easter, we at GSB will once again engage in the Flowering of the Cross. Our LS/RS will do this before school this Thursday, March 29. From 8:00am to 8:25am, the Lyceum will be open to LS/RS students to place their flowers on the cross (flowers not provided; bring your own stemmed flowers (keep about 3-4” of stem)) and stay to pray and meditate as long as they wish until 8:25. There is no formal program for LS/RS students; rather, this is intended as a quiet, prayerful, reflective, and worshipful time.
