Morning Prayer


Please click here for Morning Prayer with Fr. Twenty


A Prayer to Mary, Mother of the Church by Pope Francis

Mother, help our faith!
Open our ears to hear God’s word and to recognize his voice and call.
Awaken in us a desire to follow in his footsteps, to go forth from our own land and to receive his promise.
Help us to be touched by his love, that we may touch him in faith.
Help us to entrust ourselves fully to him and to believe in his love, especially at times of trial, beneath the shadow of the cross, when our faith is called to mature.
Sow in our faith the joy of the Risen One.
Remind us that those who believe are never alone.
Teach us to see all things with the eyes of Jesus, that he may be light for our path. And may this light of faith always increase in us, until the dawn of that undying day which is Christ himself, your Son, our Lord!

Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.


We would love to hear our students recite the Pledge of Allegiance or sing the National Anthem. If you are interested, please record yourself respectfully reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or singing the National Anthem and send it to Mrs. DiSilvio at ldisilvio@marian.com. Your recording will be placed here for all to enjoy!

Grading Update

In order to provide complete transparency and ensure that students are completely aware of what their grade would be if they do not complete missing assignments, we will begin converting all the incomplete grades to zeros, while keeping the incomplete annotation. Any missing assignments from March 16 through May 21 will remain zeros unless the student submits the assignment for a grade. If the student submits missing work before the deadline, the student will receive 100% of the earned grade for the assignment.
