CHARGER CHRONICLES

December 4, 2020

“Look upon yourself as a tree planted beside the water, which bears its fruit in due season; the more it is shaken by the wind, the deeper it strikes its roots into the ground.” -- Margaret Mary Alacoque

Please pray for the families and friends of our SMM community who have asked for our prayers. If you would like us to pray for a loved one, please send Coach Gay an email: gknock@saintmm.org.


For all service men and women; first responders; police; firefighters; health care workers; and everyone who is keeping us safe, protected, and fed during the COVID 19 crisis.


Simone Boell, Dale McCloskey, Cherie Manuel, Paula Satterlee, Lorraine Olmo, Jessica Bodron, Krista Soileau, Dr. Joel Fokom, Nicholas Eirich, Jake Blalock, Pat Karrigan, Carla Hurlburt, Eileen Bruno, Cheryl Walters Swanson, Juan Peralta, Jenee Landdry, Nicole Forrest, Courtney Palulio, and Trevor Abney.


For the reps of the soul of Sandra Adkins; for her family and friends; and for all those who mourn her loss.


For all those sick and suffering from the Coronavirus, may they recover quickly and completely.

Please Pray for Our Priests

In addition to our requests for prayers for our SMM families and community, we request that you pray for individual priests in our Archdiocese. Our priests need our prayers as much as we need theirs. These priests are celebrating their birthdays this upcoming week. What a great birthday present to have so many people praying for them.


Rev. Edwin L. Gros, S.J.; Rev. Stanley Klores; Rev. Sylvester Ugbada Adoga; Rev. Raphael M. Kasele, F.M.H.; Rev. Sergio Serrano, O.P.; Rev. Joseph Mpyer, C.S.C.; Rev. Msgr. Lanaux J. Rareshide; Rev. Msgr. Robert D. Massett


Here is a brief prayer that you may want to use:

Eternal Father, we lift up to you these and all the priests of the world. Sanctify them. Heal and guide them. Mold them into the likeness and holiness of your Son, Jesus, the Eternal High Priest. May their lives be pleasing tp you. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen

GIFT OF PRAYER IN THE YEAR 2020

St. Margaret Mary School students will participate in Gift of Prayer this year but with some modifications. In non-COVID years, the students would visit the Adoration Chapel during the Gift of Prayer Week. This year, from December 7-10, every class will spend time in adoration in the church to offer a gift of prayer for a loved one. This will allow the students to spread out. Students in grades PreK-3 through 3 will go as a grade level. Students in grades 4 - 7 will go during their Religion classes.


In the past, we invited and encouraged parents to join us, but this year we are unable to do so. Please join us in spirit during the times your children are in adoration. We all need prayer, and what greater gift could we possibly give each other than prayer.


We don’t want our students to miss this time of peace and quiet in prayer. The graces poured out in Eucharistic Adoration just can’t be found anywhere else, not even on smile.amazon.com! We look forward to praying with you!

THEY SAY IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU

We have celebrated student birthdays through the month of November on WSSM these past few weeks. Since we still have to socially distance and maintain our static groups, we do it by homerooms in grades K through 2. Grades 3 through 7 are done by grade level. We will continue to socially distance static groups when they come to the WSMM studio. Students will be expected to wear their masks the entire time. Every month, we will work through the cycle. Here is the schedule for December:


2-1 Birthdays in December on WSMM on Tuesday, December 8

5th Grade Birthdays in December on WSMM on Wednesday, December 9

2-2 Birthdays in December on WSMM on Thursday, December 10
