THANK YOU SACRED HEART SCHOOL
We recently received an envelope filled with kind and encouraging messages from students at Sacred Heart School in Rockport, Texas. The students and faculty members of Sacred Heart School endured Hurricane Harvey in 2017. They know exactly what our community and school families are going through at this time.
The letters are posted on a bulletin board in the ICCS lobby for everyone to see and enjoy. May God bless our friends at Sacred Heart School in Rockport, Texas! We thank them for sending their love and support all the way to Lake Charles from Texas!
MIDDLE SCHOOL ENRICHMENT NEWS
PRAYER AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS
O Mary, you shine continuously along our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the Cross were near to the pain of Jesus, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman people, know what we need, and we trust that you will provide for those needs so that, as at Cana of Galilee, joy and celebration may return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the will of the Father and to do what Jesus tells us, He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and took up our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
