Prayer for Social Justice

Lord Jesus, Carpenter and King, supreme Sovereign of all men, look with tender mercy upon the multitudes of our day who bear the indignities of injustice everywhere. Raise up leaders in every land dedicated to Your standards of order, equity and justice.

Grant unto us, Lord Jesus, the grace to be worthy members of Your Mystical Body, labouring unceasingly to fulfill our vocation in the social apostolate of Your Church.

Sharpen our intellects to pierce the pettiness of prejudice; to perceive the beauty of true human brotherhood. Guide our minds to a meaningful understanding of the problems of the poor, of the oppressed, of the unemployed, of all in need of assistance anywhere.

Guide our hearts against the subtle lure of earthly things and undue regard for those who possess them.

May we hunger and thirst after justice always.

The kitchen at Notre Dame is under construction for repairs so there will be no breakfast club tomorrow morning.

Saying goodbye to Mrs. Whaley

It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to one of our EA’s. Mrs. Whaley’s enthusiasm, dedication, and creativity will be missed in our classrooms and our hallways, as she is moving on to accept a full-time position at another school. Thank you so much Mrs. Whaley. We will miss you!
