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;

Juan Antonio Aviles Sr. (96 yrs old) , Great-Grandfather to Amanda & Antonio Aviles

 Kevin Kuchler, Mrs. Kuchler's son

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:


John Tedesco, Mrs. O'Sullivan and Mrs. Scali's uncle

Richard Krohley, Sr., Brandon Krohley's grandfather

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