The Sacred Heart School of Glyndon welcomed back teachers and staff this week to prepare for the long awaited return of students. The halls will be full of the happy sounds of children, muffled by masks of course, on Monday morning!
Let us join together to offer our prayers for all those returning to school under these very uncertain and difficult circumstances:
Blessed are you, Lord God,
Creator of body and mind and heart;
you have sent the Spirit of wisdom and knowledge
to guide your people in all their ways.
At the beginning of this new school year,
in this time of uncertainty and anxiety,
we implore your mercy.
Bless and protect our students, teachers,
staffs, and their families.
Give wisdom to the decision makers,
be they in our schools or in our homes.
Expand the horizons of our minds,
and deepen our commitment to seek
the truth of your ways.
Enliven our faith to reach out to those in need,
particularly those isolated and lonely.
In these days when so much has changed,
help us to trust in the love of your Son Jesus,
our Divine Teacher, who is the same
yesterday, today, and forever.
Additional Masses coming soon at Sacred Heart:
Saturday 4:00 PM Vigil Mass begins September 5
Sunday 4:00 PM misa en español begins September 13
It is with mixed emotions that I write to inform you that I have resigned as Director of Mission at Sacred Heart; my last day will be September 19th. I will be moving to Northern New York to work as a Department of Defense civilian, serving as a Director of Religious Education for the Army chapel community at Ft. Drum. Before arriving in Maryland 3 years ago, I worked in a similar capacity. Though I will miss this community very much, I feel God is calling me to go back to the service of our Church and country by serving those who defend our freedom and their families. I am grateful for the support received and friendships made here and I will look back on these days with joy and fondness.
Please keep my family in your prayers as we prepare to make a quick transition north next month. Please also pray for a fruitful search for the next Director of Mission at Sacred Heart.
Wishing you all the peace of Christ,
on Wednesday, August 26 at 4:30PM
