PRAYER and ANNOUNCEMENTS for May 23, 2022

Good morning JCA family. Today is Monday May 23rd, 2022.

O God of all beginnings and endings, We praise and thank you for the gift of this school year. It has been a time filled with grace and blessings, With challenges and opportunities, joys, and sorrows.

The days have passed quickly, O Lord. The weeks, the months, the seasons, the holidays and holy days, the exams, vacations, breaks, and assemblies, all have come forth from your hand.

While we trust that your purposes have always been at work each day, sometimes it has seemed difficult to understand and appreciate just what you have been up to in our school.

Give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer. Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit. Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion, and bless us, according to your will, with the fulfillment of our summer hopes and dreams. Watch over us in the weeks of rest ahead, And guide each day as you have done this past year. Help us return to school with a new spirit and a new energy.

May we continue to grow in age, wisdom, knowledge, and grace All the days of our lives.

Amen.

  • OUR LADY OF MT. CARMEL…. pray for us
  • FRANCIS OF ASSISI……. pray for us

PRAYER and ANNOUNCEMENTS for May 20, 2022

Good morning JCA family. Today is Friday, May 20th, 2022.

Always-present God,

help me to be present to all who need me.

Help me be present

to those I know too well to actually see

and to those who are unseen strangers to me.

Give me the ability to model your attentive, loving gaze

when I view my world,

my family

and my friends,

who are seen and loved by you first.

Finally, may my availability be marked by a desire

to be like your Son:

open to being sent,

open to being loved,

open to becoming love in the world.

PRAYER and ANNOUNCEMENTS for May 18, 2022

Good morning JCA family. Today is Wednesday, May 18th, 2022.

O Lord our God, in your mercy and kindness, no thought of ours is left unnoticed, no desire or concern ignored. You have proven that blessings abound when we fall on our knees in prayer, and so we turn to you in our hour of need. Surrounded by violence and cries for justice, we hear your voice telling us what is required, “Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God” (Mi 6:8). Fill us with your mercy so that we, in turn, may be merciful to others. Strip away pride, suspicion, and racism so that we may seek peace and justice in our communities. Strengthen our hearts so that they beat only to the rhythm of your holy will. Flood our path with your light as we walk humbly toward a future filled with encounter and unity. Be with us, O Lord, in our efforts, for only by the prompting of your grace can we progress toward virtue.

  • OUR LADY OF MT. CARMEL…. pray for us
  • FRANCIS OF ASSISI……. pray for us
