From the Superintendent...

For this week, the Prayer on Unity and Healing seems appropriate as we face a week of unknowns.

Prayer for Unity and Healing
Lord our God, we come to you this day with broken hearts and broken spirits.
We are in need of your healing.
A healing that recognizes our own sinfulness.
A healing that proceeds from inexhaustible love.
A healing that summons us to recognize everyone in our society as brother and sister.
A healing that leads us from division to unity, from animosity to love.
The motto of our nation is “from many, one”.
Let this motto be our pathway forward as a nation in these coming days,
so that the spirit of Washington, Lincoln and King might reanimate our nation
with the greatness of which we are capable.
And let us entrust these petitions to our God in union with the Blessed Mother,
 the ultimate example of discipleship rooted in love.
