SCS Happenings: April 23, 2023

Saint Catharine of Siena, pray for us.

From One Wildcat to Another...

Earth Day Prayer

O merciful Creator, your hand is open wide to satisfy the
needs of every living creature: Make us always thankful for
your loving providence; and grant that we, remembering the
account that we must one day give, may be faithful stewards
of your good gifts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with
you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.

Thank you for all you do today, tomorrow, and always. Saint Catharine of Siena, pray for us.

Air high fives to all,

Mrs. Marcella Kraycik
