8TH GRADE GIRLS LOCK-IN BIG SUCCESS
A BIG ICCS Panther THANK YOU to Middle School Religion Teacher, Mrs. Milissa Thibodeaux for donating, coordinating, and supervising the 8th Grade Girl's Lock In a few weeks ago! The 8th Grade girls enjoyed a delicious homecooked meal by "Chef T" and an evening filled with hilarious games, bonding time, prayer and reflection opportunities, music, and FUN! The girls reminisced throughout the evening and enjoyed one last night in their soon-to-be "old school." Thank you, Mrs. "T" for your time, energy, and generosity.

MS. HANNAH IS OFFICIALLY MEDICAL SCHOOL BOUND
Hannah is our current 4th & 5th Grade ELA and Religion teacher. She will be trading in her teacher hat for a physician lab coat in the near future. We wish Hannah well and will be keeping her in our thoughts and prayers as she starts her Medical School journey in August. We appreciate Hannah stepping up when we needed her the most.
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.
