The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Welcome to on-line school week two!
Let us begin with a prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you, Lord, for giving us the guidance and technology to serve you well last week. We continue to ask for your blessings to keep us working and placing all of our fears and doubts into your hands. We trust that you will continue to shepherd us with the light of truth. We continue to ask for your guidance in keeping our minds open to this new way of learning at Our Lady of Mercy School. We ask you to bless our national and community leaders as they try to keep us safe. We pray too for the community servants who care for the sick and respond to our needs. May we find peace and comfort through the life and death of your son, Jesus Christ.
Our Lady of Mercy; pray for us.
The following is the plan for my students for this week. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
