Anxiety and Coping With Coronavirus

Other Great Spiritual Resources!

  1. The SoF School team is putting out a new Youtube resource called The Table: Conversations about Catholic Ed. and Catechesis for teachers and parents. There will be a variety of resources on in the future but right now there are two short videos for parents as they face the reality of virtual ed. in their homes dealing with God’s call to us as parents and dealing with possible anxiety in our kids. Please feel free to hand this on to your parents and your teachers. This could be a cool resource moving forward.
    1. Encouragement to Parents as the Primary Educators
    2. What to do if my kids are anxious these days?

2. Prepare for Palm Sunday- click here for a resource from "Walking with Purpose"

3. Washing of the Feet for Families

4. End of the Day Prayer-Please join us in saying this prayer at the end of day.

"Dear Saint Joseph our patron saint help us to work for a better education and to increase our faith and love in God our father. Thank you for the priests and teachers who guide us through our search of knowledge. Dear Saint Joseph help preserve our Catholic school. Amen. "

Food Resources

Food Insecurity is a growing need in our community. While we have several schools in Wyandotte County serving meals (Our Lady of Unity, Resurrection, and Bishop Ward) , others of you may need to rely on your public school partners. Public schools are providing drive thru/grab and go breakfasts and lunches to ANY child ages 1-18. You do not need to live in the school district or attend that school to receive meals. There is no paperwork or sign up. You simply drive to a providing location. The students you are picking up a meal for need to be present in the car. See the information below for Blue Valley and Shawnee Mission times and locations.

Blue Valley Grab and Go Locations 10:30-1:00 while meals last

Shawnee Mission Grab and Go information 10:30-11:30 while meals last

Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas

All of Catholic Charities food pantries are open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. There are no income guidelines to access the food pantry. A list of service centers is attached to this email.
