Welcome to our Prayer Corner

We understand that we need to pray each day, reflecting on the blessings and graces God sends us. 
We do this so when hard and difficult days come we will remember and know we can turn to God
for grace, consolation and peace.

Let us bring our hopes and needs to Jesus, as we pray for;

Frances Hagstotz, grandmother of Isabella Ruisi
 
Betty Buatti, grandmother of Ms. McHugh
 
Thomas James Hicks, younger brother of Pre-K student Evelyn Hicks

Aaron Sisa, First Grade Student & Friend

For the continued good health of our school's  friend, Claire Hopkins


and for the repose of the soul of:

All those who are departed that we hold dear in our hearts
