1. Pope Francis' prayer to Mary during coronavirus pandemic

O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus' pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

8. New Online Opportunities for Teens

This forced time apart has also opened new doors for teens to grow in faith. Here are some virtual groups that are starting online for St Pius X teens. Groups will combine online presentations as well as zoom meetings and some at home prayer & reflection. All groups will start after Easter. Minimum participation is 3 students per group.

Prayer in PJ’s— daily zoom meeting for 5 min of quick prayer for one another and any needs we want to share. Time will be set by participants.

Regular Rosary—super quick daily prayer together, learn a bit about Mary and her role in faith. Probably lunchtime.

Echo the Story—a creative Catholic Bible Experience focusing on the biblical narrative through storytelling, creative reflection, and dialogue. Echo the Story 12 is an overview of the Bible, from creation to the formation of the church. Multiple sessions.

Youth Engaged in Scripture– teens reflect on the Sunday’s scriptures, ever-ancient and ever-new exploring the ways that the Sunday readings, God’s word, is relevant in their lives. On-going, teens can enter group or leave at any time.

Catholic Youth & Prayer—explore a wide variety of prayer styles from the comfort of your home. 14 sessions but more could be added.

Email from God—teens sign up for a daily email from God. These emails are packed with guidance and assurance, every email will help you deal with the real issues of life.. This is a devotional that is set up like an email and aimed at helping teens understand just how much God loves them. No online meeting

9. Is Your Teen an Insta-Expert?

I need the help of a few friendly teens! The Parish has an Instagram account but we could utilize it much more effectively if we had a group of young people who are able to coach me on it. Please email me ( or reach out on FB if your teen would like to help out!
