“The Lenten journey begins today, Ash Wednesday. I invite each of you to live this time in an authentic spirit of penance and conversion, like a return to the Father, who awaits us all with open arms.”- Pope Francis
On Wednesday Pomona Catholic celebrated Ash Wednesday with a beautiful mass, led by our 7th grade students. These students spent a lot of time working to put together a special mass, and it was a wonderful celebration for all. PC was happy to warmly welcome special guests Fr Ron Clark from Our Lady of the Assumption and the E3 Accreditation visitors as they joined students, parents, faculty and staff for mass.
Upon the conclusion of mass, Senior Alyssa Arias was announced as the winner of the Christian Service Award! Alyssa has a total of 600 service hours earned during her time at Pomona Catholic. She serves as a leader in several organizations including the Police Explorers Program with Pomona PD and was recently honored as Rotary Student of the Month.
The choir and music were during mass led by Mr. Miguel Martinez.
