During this time, we can rest assured that our hope is in the Lord, Jesus Christ. On this site we are striving to support one another through the richness of our faith.

April 8: The following prayer was created by the artist Clare McCallen. https://www.claremccallan.com/shop.html
Last week, I opened our Google Meet Staff Meeting with the wonderful teaching of the Church: The Communion of Saints. The Catechism defines this teaching as “the pilgrims on earth, the dead being purified, and the blessed in heaven, together forming one Church”. Although we are in isolation, we are still close in spirit...thanks to the Holy Spirit :)
The following prayer is called the Litany of April. There are many different litanies that petition for our Lord's help, as well as the prayers of His Blessed Mother, and the Saints. I pray that you journey with our Lord as you read each line. Lastly, please know you make this prayer with the communion of saints in the St. Clair Catholic District School Board - and you are a member.
Intention: For those who have jobs that put them at risk and can’t afford to miss a day’s work.
Grace be with you,

Living with Christ
Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. (LS-1) The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development. (LS-13)
