SMCS STUDENTS AND TEACHERS TRANSITION BACK TO CAMPUS
The St. Margaret's students and teachers are moving back "HOME" next week. For the first time since Hurricane Laura, they will be in their own classrooms and learning environment. What a blessing! We wish them well and will keep them in our thoughts and prayers as they transition back to their campus to continue to grow and learn as a school community.
St. Margaret of Scotland, pray for us. Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, pray for us.

ANNUAL VARITY SHOW GOES VIRTUAL
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.
