Virtual Easter Liturgy

Hello Panther Community,

Please join us for our Virtual Easter Liturgy on Friday, April 24 @ 11 am, with Father Raphael. Teachers will post the live stream link to their classroom communication platforms.

Praying the Rosary

A month ago Pope Francis asked all the faithful to pray the Rosary for the intentions of all those sick with COVID-19, for the healthcare workers and researchers fighting the virus, and for all who have been affected by this pandemic. If you are looking for new ways to pray the Rosary, there are many groups praying it online and broadcasting on YouTube so you can pray along.  One such group is Salt and Light TV.  They have videos on their website to pray the rosary each day of the week.

You can access Salt and Light here.

The Good Green Earth – Earth Day, April 22

Reflection

How fortunate we are that God has created such a beautiful world in which we live! We are gifted with so many wonders of creation: seas and lakes, mountains, forests, plains, and canyons. Even in the most crowded cities, signs of God’s life are evident in the trees and the flowers, the birds, and the squirrels. All of us need to appreciate and treasure the gifts we have been given in this glorious earth, and we need to work together to learn how to sustain these gifts.

Prayer

God our creator, we have inherited a world of great beauty and splendour for which we are so grateful. It is you who are the author of the many natural wonders of our world – magnificent mountains, vast seas, rolling green pastures.

We praise and thank you for your generosity in giving us this glorious planet on which we live. Our greed and our need to consume have done untold damage to your earth.

So much of our water is polluted, many species of your animals are extinct or endangered, and countless people are starving because others have plundered the resources they need to sustain themselves.

We ask your forgiveness and the grace to learn from our mistakes. Help us to be ever mindful, dear Lord, of the goodness of your creation, and foster in us the desire to uphold the beauty of this world we live in.

Make us good stewards of all you have given us so we do not destroy this good green earth, but help us to treasure and maintain your global gifts so we can pass them on to future generations.

We pray these things through Christ, our Lord. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
