Lenten Project

Throughout this Lenten season, St. Cyprian students will collect loose change for the children of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. Mercy Home is a Catholic charity that provides shelter, food, clothing, and support to children who are unable to receive these basic necessities in their own homes. It is a place of hope and healing for these children, many of whom have experienced domestic abuse, gang violence, and other trauma at home. The loose change we will collect during Lent will support their efforts to provide a safe home for the 150 children it currently serves.

Hoops Mania is Back!

NCAA March Madness is just weeks away, and St. Cyprian School is participating in a great fundraiser in celebration of one of the biggest sports events of the year! We encourage all families to participate by selling Hoops Mania tickets to family and friends. Tickets are $10 each, and if each family sold just 8 tickets we would raise $5,000 for St. Cyprian!

Plus, the top selling family wins $50 off tuition AND the top selling class wins a pizza party!

Contact Mrs. Marshall or Mrs. Ewig for more information or to request tickets so you can participate.

Simple Meals

All are invited to a Simple Meal of soup, followed by fellowship and reflection, in our pavilion on select Wednesdays during Lent: February 24, March 9, and March 16. We are in need of volunteers to contribute soup on March 16. If you are willing to contribute a soup, please contact Mrs. Kmiecik at 708-453-6300 or dkmiecik@stcyps.org

Benefit Games Ad Book

Sunday, March 20th, is St. Cyprian School’s 42nd Annual Benefit Games – the most important fundraiser (and fun event!) for our Athletic Association. There are many ways you can show your support in the coming weeks as we prepare for the event, including purchasing an ad for the commemorative ad book. We ask local businesses to purchase ads, but school parents and families can also purchase ads as a way to show their support of their favorite Charger student-athletes! Please consider purchasing an ad using this form or donating a raffle item to help make our 42nd Annual Benefit Games a success!

Family Mass

On the last Sunday of each month, St. Cyprian Parish will be having Family Mass at the 11am mass. The first family mass will be Sunday, February 28th, at 11am. The Kindergarten and 4th grade classes from both the school and religious education programs will help lead the mass, serving as the choir and doing the mass parts. We welcome ALL St. Cyprian families, not only those with children in Kindergarten and 4th grade, to join us on Feb. 28th to pray together as a community during this mass geared especially at children.

St. Patrick’s Benefit

Mark your calendars for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Benefit on Sunday, March 13th, 12-6pm at the Underpass Lounge in Franklin Park! This year there will be a huge heated tent and lots of live music. All proceeds benefit the St. Cyprian Tarpey/Stamm Scholarship Fund. This event is fun for the whole family, so don’t miss it!

We are looking for a few volunteers to help work the door for 1-hour shifts. If you are able to help, contact Mrs. Marshall.
