Friday, September 8th



Today, the Catholic Church celebrated the birthday of the blessed Virgin Mary. Since our school is named after St. Mary, we can celebrate her birthday in our own special way.

Loving God,

Thank you for the life and example of Mary.

She is the mother of our Church and our Heavenly mother.

Help us to ask for her intercessions when we are in need.

Help our world during uncertain times,

and help us as we begin this new school year.

Through Christ our Lord,
