Heart to Heart
As we prepare for Easter during this Lenten season, we are called to prayer, sacrifice, and good works. Since 1996, Ancillae-Assumpta Academy has answered that call through our Heart to Heart program. Heart to Heart is a networking program that seeks to see Christ in the face of the poor served by the Handmaid ministries in Argentina, Bolivia, Cameroon, Chile, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, East Timor, Ecuador, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, India, Indonesia, Panama, Peru, Philippines, and Vietnam.
Make a small sacrifice to improve the educational opportunities of children in those countries served by the Handmaids. Your donation of $25 will be sent to the country of your choice. Send your donation to school by March 29, 2019, online or via the Heart to Heart envelope.
In the spirit of journeying together, this year our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students took the lead in Ancillae’s annual Heart to Heart initiative. Each Advisory group learned about the Handmaid ministries in one of the countries receiving Heart to Heart donations. The students reflected on how the Sisters are living the Gospel and the demands of Catholic Social Teaching. They prepared a brief Powerpoint or iMovie to share with the rest of the Ancillae community.
