Greetings to all of our Presentation Families,
We made through our 11th week of in-person learning! This is something to celebrate. Please join me in giving thanks to our teachers, support staff, volunteers and families working hard to keep everyone safe.
During times like these fear can sneak up on us and sometimes take over. Remember, our children are watching us. They learn from us how to handle tough situations. What do we want our kids to learn from what we are experiencing? To fear, to complain, to be upset everyday or to give thanks for the blessings each day that God has given us? How can we help our children see joy in each other, each moment, and spread it? How can we teach our children about God’s mercy through helping our neighbors and praying for each other? Each day together is a blessing and a gift from God. We all need to teach our children how to treasure these moments even during hard times.
When I am worried, stressed, or feeling overwhelmed, I turn to God and pray to St. Anthony for Hope and Healing:
O Loving St. Anthony,
You respond to the needs of the sick and the troubled with countless miracles of healing and hope.
Hear my prayers for your heavenly intercession. Comfort me when I am ill. Stay by my side when I am afflicted with worry and anxiety. Help me to experience God’s healing power through your prayers, as well as my own.
If I am burdened with suffering, lead me to unite myself to the cross of Jesus Christ, so that my pain and sorrow can be of spiritual benefit to me and to others.
Pray for me, O good St. Anthony! Help me to realize that Jesus is with me every step of the way, every day of my life, and that in the strength of His gracious love, I will overcome life’s fears and difficulties. Amen
Don’t let fear take control, let us walk this journey together with God by our side. Continue to be vigilant with wearing masks, washing hands, physically distancing from others, and staying home when anyone in our household is sick.
May God continue to bless our school community with His love and grace.
Blessings to you and your family,
Sue Lovegreen, principal
