Cheer on Sienna in new HBO show, "Karma"!

Sienna Coward '22 is on a new reality teen competition show called  KARMA. In the show, 16 contestants go off the grid to compete in physical challenges that tests mental and physical stamina. Each participant has to consider how their social actions may impact their success in the game. The casting call received 12,000 applicants and took nine boys and nine girls from all over the U.S.

Sienna said, “I’m proud to be representing Northern California on this teen competition show! To be completely off the grid in the wilderness while filming this show was an experience I’ll never forget. The friendships I made while filming KARMA will last a lifetime.”

The show will be shown on the new streaming platform HBO Max starting on June 18 . No spoilers allowed so we'll all have to follow along and cheer on Sienna in her adventure!

Staying Connected through Prayer
On Saturday, we celebrated the seniors with a Senior Car Parade at Carondelet! We used the opportunity to express our gratitude for them and the joy that they all brought to our lives. As they continue forward with the adventure of their lives, we want to always remind them that they are not alone and have a home at Carondelet. So, we pray:

Loving God, 

Today we pray for our graduating seniors and their families in our community. We pray that we can all stay connected with one another and remember that we are not alone. Help us to be grateful for the friendships and relationships we have made. Teach us to always value the people who are important to us. We ask for a special blessing on all the seniors, that they always remember their roots and to always love their dear neighbor without distinction. We also thank you for the many hours spent in the preparation for the senior parade and for all the people that were involved in making it such a special send-off for our amazing seniors and their families.

Amen.

St Joseph… Pray for us, God is my light.

In the name of the Creator, the Redeemer, and of the Sustainer. Amen

Have a great morning and be love in someone's life today!
