We believe prayer makes a difference. We also know there is a lot of anxiety and challenges with going back to school as we seek flatten the curve to lessen the spread of Covid 19. We know prayer helps usher in peace and hope in difficult times. This is not to say this isn’t a hard time - it is. We are doing what we do best – to pray.
We invite others to join us starting even now – to pray for peace, wisdom and protection for our school administrators, teachers, aides, custodians, parents and students. Together we can support our own during this difficult time with prayer, presence and encouragement.
