THIS MONTH'S VIRTUE IS R-E-S-P-E-C-T
RESPECT LOOKS LIKE:
- Only saying nice things about your siblings and classmates
- Not laughing at others
- Listening the first time and discontinuing an action when someone asks you to stop
- Listening attentively to others
RESPECT SOUNDS LIKE:
- He is really good at….
- It is not nice to laugh at people.
- I will stop doing that.
- Silence when someone else is speaking.
CLASSROOM AND SCHOOL NEWS
Father Rommel blessed all of the exterior doors leading into ICCS last Friday. May all the thresholds of our school building be a sacred place where we come to offer Christian hospitality. May God’s Angels stand guard at the right and left of our exterior doors to grace our comings and goings. 20+C+M+B+21

HEALTH SAFETY IS A TOP PRIORITY
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.
