“It is impossible to make mental prayer without Mary…Let us unite ourselves to Mary in mental prayer and beg her to make her Son known to us. Mary is present. She is watching over us with maternal solicitude, making herself all to all and apportioning her help according to our need …She enriches the poor, protects the timid, disarms the one who is angry, touches the hearts of the ungrateful, and never abandons anyone.”
We ask that you keep the following members of our school community in your prayers:
  • Faculty John Mohr
  • Board Member Rev. Msgr. Jack Costello
  • Andrew Knirr '21
  • Karen Gauvain, wife of faculty Dave Gauvain
