Prayer Corner

Some of you may have received this information a couple of times, but in case you did not…

Ellie Hoban, daughter of SBPS STEM teacher Jen and associate board member Ben, was recently diagnosed with neuroblastoma.  A gofundme account has been established to help offset medical costs associated with Ellie's treatment.  More info is available on the gofundme page linked below. Please feel free to share this with others via email, but at this point Ben and Jenny have asked that we do not post this on social media. Ellie starts her next round of chemo on Monday so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Please pray for 7th Grader, Ethan Li -

We please ask for renewed prayers for our 7th grader, Ethan Li. His treatments haven’t gone as well as hoped - see their blog for more info:

A Prayer for the End of School

O God of all beginnings and endings,
We praise and thank you for the gift of this school year.
It has been a time filled with grace and blessings,
With challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows.

The days have passed quickly, O Lord.
The weeks, the months, the seasons, the holidays and holy days,
The exams, vacations, breaks, and assemblies,
All have come forth from your hand.

While we trust that your purposes have always been at work each day,
Sometimes it has seemed difficult to understand and appreciate
Just what you have been up to in our school.

Give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer.
Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit.
Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion,
And bless us, according to your will,

With the fulfillment of our summer hopes and dreams.
Watch over us in the weeks of rest ahead,
And guide each day as you have done this past year.
Help us return to school with a new spirit and a new energy.

May we continue to grow
In age, wisdom, knowledge and grace
All the days of our lives.


St. Benedict, Pray for Us.
