As we begin the Lenten season, we are called to reflect on the three areas in our preparation, prayer, fasting and almsgiving. As part of our almsgiving, the staff and students at Sir Edgar Bauer school will be assisting our parish partners at St. Michael’s Church in their Lenten Project, North of 60 KW.
What is North of 60 KW?
North of 60 KW is a Lenten Project of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Michael’s parish. The goal of this project is to assist 25 families in the small town of Baker Lake Nunavut.
Facts about Bake Lake:
- Baker Lake includes eleven different Inuit groups.
- Most of its citizens work at nearby mines.
- 40 % of the population is children under that age of 18.
How can we help?
On Monday March 2, we will begin the collection for the North of 60 KW project. Each week the students will be invited to bring in a different item that will be sent to the community of Baker Lake. The items we will be collecting appeal to children.
March 2-6: Kraft Dinner
March 9-13: Granola Bars
March 23-27: Cookies
March 30- April 2: Kraft Dinner
