Wednesday, June 1st

 DAY 1


Today let us focus on forgiveness. Forgiveness removes the past hurts, relationship wounds, and nagging grudges. Offering forgiveness, or asking for forgiveness, helps us to experience love and freedom.   

Loving God,

It is in this place and in this time that you want me to grow.

Help me to experience love and freedom in life by forgiving others,

and asking forgiveness for those I've hurt.

This is not easy, but give me the strength to try.

Through Christ our Lord.



Main Entrance - Mrs. Khan
North Entrance - Ms. Glass
South Entrance - Mr. Ruzkowski


Wednesday - Smokies & Perogies $3.00
