Our school wide virtue this week is: 
CARING
CARING is being attentive and responsive to the needs of others, particularly those who are suffering or in need.

Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; blessed indeed will be you be because of their inability to repay you.
 Luke 14: 13-14

A Note from Keri Murphy, CRE
Life is fragile, handle with PRAYER!

God is present in our lives and he desires to have a relationship with us. One way we can develop a better relationship with God is through PRAYER. A family Prayer map is a game families can play at home.
You need;
  1. Something to be your game markers. (ie. markers from another game you have at home, a coin, a cut out of different colored circles, any small objects, etc…)
  2. One di or numbered spinner.                                       
  3. Index cards for the blank spaces.
  4. Game board. Click here!

Enjoy your family prayer time!
