Youth Contest

NEW CONTEST -- "St. Teresa of Calcutta: Lessons for Lent”

For the past 14 years, we have been inviting and encouraging use of the Catholic Herald in the classroom in Catholic schools and religious education programs in the Diocese of Madison through our Newspapers in the Classroom project. Copies of the Catholic Herald are provided free of charge to Catholic schools and religious education programs requesting them.

During Lent this year, the Catholic Herald is sponsoring a contest involving students in grades kindergarten through high school with the best entries being published in the Catholic Herald. The contest is called “St. Teresa of Calcutta: Lessons for Lent.” More information on the contest is attached.

Once a month during the school year, the Catholic Herald is continuing to publish Junior Saints, a special section introducing students to Catholics living their faith in ordinary and extraordinary ways. Students meet a new saint each month. They also learn more about Catholic rituals, events, and holy days of the liturgical year. One page of this section is devoted to what is happening with youth in the Diocese of Madison.

Thanks to all the principals, teachers, directors and coordinators of religious education, parents, and students for your cooperation and participation in the Catholic Herald contests.

We especially want to thank Margie Schels, a teacher at St. John the Baptist School in Jefferson, who has helped develop the ideas for these contests since 2003.

Please feel free to contact the Catholic Herald office by phone or e-mail if you have any questions. God bless all of you!

MONONA -- A walk down the hallway at Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) School in Monona doesn't take too long -- less than a minute to get from one end to the other.

Elementary school classes, up to grade four, are on one side, with the middle school classes, up to grade eight, on the other side.

While the distance is short, the journey from one side of the hallway to the other side can be a challenge for students as they become older and enter the middle school grades.

Nearly 13,000 teens who attended the Youth Day were asked, "What are you waiting for?" This theme challenged the teens not to delay living out their faith.
