St. Michael’s Families,
I would like to congratulate the following students who auditioned and were selected for 7th, 8th, and 9th Grade ACDA Allstate and who will be attending this honors weekend January 26-28 in Farmington, NM.
I wish you all a beautiful, blessed, and relaxing Thanksgiving Break!
I remind you again, that optimally educating our students requires a functional, healthy, interdependent tripod consisting of you the parents, us the professional educators and your children, the students. We must each, earnestly uphold our individual legs of responsibility for true success.
Please join me in prayer in thanking God for our many blessings and his guiding foundational support to our tripod.
All Holy, Loving, and Compassionate God,
We thank you for your loving care of all creation and your protection and guidance over all. We come to you today, with all the faith and trust we can muster at this time. Please come to us in our vocation as educators and ministers of Christ. We pray for your blessings over our lives, our work, our livelihood, and our families. Guide us with your wisdom. May we be empowered by your Spirit to see the needs of our students and to inspire those under our care.
We bring our parents, guardians, and caregivers of our students before you. We are faced with unprecedented challenges. We must make decisions that require your wisdom, understanding and insight. When we feel overwhelmed, be present in our lives. May we never feel alone or abandoned. Strengthen us from within, so that we might be a source of strength, confidence, and hope for our children.
Most of all, we bring before you our students who will either be educated online, at home, or in person in our schools. As they pursue their education at this time, enlighten their minds. May they grow in grace and wisdom. In areas where there is a lack, provide them knowledge, understanding, counsel, and fortitude. Keep them safe from all illnesses and protect them from all harm.
We ask all these things, through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary, and through Christ our teacher.
St. Michael the Archangel, Pray for us. St. John Baptist de La Salle, Pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.
In the Lasallian Spirit,
Dr. Lana Kingsbury
