Marissa DiCarlo, a member of the Humanities Department at Sacred Heart High School in Waterbury, affixes an “I Phone Fast, Will U?” sticker on Sacred Heart seniors Christine Nguyen and Joel Betancourt on Ash Wednesday, March 1.

The Archdiocese of Hartford's Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis invited all students at Catholic high schools to join an archdiocese-wide Lenten campaign of abstaining from use of their cell phones on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, April 14.

The students, faculty and staff at Sacred Heart took part in the campaign, which was designed to help participants better hear God’s call and to become more prayerful during the Lenten season. (Photo submitted)
