Mrs. Pierce's Principal Message

Lent: An Uncommon Love Story


Love is not an adjective; but a verb! Jesus loves us so much He endured great pain when things around him did not go right. He transposes our suffering or hardships with His love. Christ, our model teacher, reminds us that in difficult times, He gives us strength, hope, vision, grace, empathy and compassion for others. Throughout our journey, He is with us. Saint Teresa of Calcutta reminds us to be a witness to our faith and strive to love and serve God the best we can each day. “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”

Lenten Action: Do an unnecessary act of love today, remembering God's love for you.

Prayer: Give me a perfect heart to receive your work, that I may bring forth fruit in patience” (EWTN.com).


Blessings,

Mrs. Pierce

Rosary Groups

We are in the Lenten Season and it is a season of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. Would you like to begin your day in prayer, but can’t seem to make the time? This Lent, consider taking one morning each week to begin your day with the Rosary. We have two morning Rosary Prayer Groups here at SMG – one each for men and women. We are very informal – come as you are. We meet in the St. Maria Center at 7:35 am. Drop off your student in car line, then stop in for 20 minutes of prayer. There is no better way to begin the day than spending a few moments with God. All are welcome to join us.


Women’s Rosary Group (babies / toddlers welcome)

Monday Mornings 7:35 am
