“Come Summer With Me”

Come summer with me, Lord;
summer deep down in my soul;
restore my faith in summer’s time,
in rest, in joy, in play, in you...
Summer in my heart, Lord,
and dwell there
as if time would never end,
as if all time were children's time, eternal time
when school is always out and joy is ever in…
And let others summer in my shade, Lord,
and share whatever summer’s peace is mine to give,
whatever summer’s light is mine to shed,
whatever summer's warmth is mine to share...
Good God of every season and every day this week,
come summer with me, Lord, and let the child in my heart
spend this summer in your love...

Amen.

Attention St Clare
The archdiocese has issued additional guidelines in the reopening plan and we wanted you to be aware of the various aspects of the plan. As always, we will provide whatever information as it comes from the archdiocese. There is a link at the bottom of this article that supplies a synopsis of the changes.
