Prayer & Daily Announcements

PRAYER and ANNOUNCEMENTS for January 18, 2022

Good morning JCA family. Today is Tuesday January 18th, 2022.

Today, we will focus on the reason for our day off yesterday.  The civil rights movement and the man who taught us to focus on the dignity of all people.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We give thanks today Lord God for the life of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.  Lead us in this Catholic school to reflect deeply on the Christian roots of the civil rights movement and on our call to embrace true equality between people of different ethnic backgrounds, cultural characteristics, and national affiliations.  Help us look to the example of Martin Luther King Jr. as we work for peace and for the support of those living in conditions of injustice and poverty.  We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.


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